Thank you so much for your post! I was just sitting here wondering if I should ask about my spasms and then I found your post. The problem I have been having is that my calf muscles on my right leg have felt tight and in constant spasm for about a week now. I keep getting bad "shocky" feelings in my foot and up my leg. Every now and then my foot will "lock" and turn in. It is very painful! Also, on my right arm I have the same thing along the bottom part of my arm (forgive me my anatomy name escapes me! LOL).
Today I have been having a lot of trouble walking it feels as though my leg weighs 1,000 lbs!
I am on Baclofen and another muscle relaxer with a long name beginning with Co.... I'm not near my meds right now so I can't give you the exact name. The doctor has increased them but my PCP is telling me that perhaps I need to go on the pump. Does anyone have any input on that? It really scares me! I am also on Copaxone, Amantadine, Fentanyl Patch, Amatryptalyne, and Vicodin (as needed) that one I only take at night if I can. It really scares me being on so many meds but the Dr says that they are needed and, I know that, once I tried not to take them and paid the price!
The problem, my doctor tells me, is that I more than likely, have had MS since in my 20's and now I am in my late 50's (ok, so I will be 60 this year but heck it's just a number!) So he says that is why I am so severe. He told me at my last visit that I was no longer R/R but in the progessive stage. My head gets "swimming" sometimes from how fast everything has moved!
Sorry this has been so long I only meant to say "thanks" but, the more I wrote the more I had to ask. Thanks for reading.
