I had a big big problem with spasms, these were triggered by movement and affected hands, arms, trunck and legs. Without meds I would have at the very least 200 spasms a day. These spasms will get the control of my hands and will not allow me to move my legs for a minute or so. Not good.
After my angio, I did NOT notice a difference with spasms right away. It took about a month to see some minor differences. I mean really minor. Two months afterwards I noticed a huge difference. Three months afterwards I was able to get out of my cocktail of anti-spasms meds.
I have no idea why my spasms resolved after the angio. Could be the collaterals affecting the thyroid? I mean who knows.
There are certain things that I'm curious to know how they work, like how exactly planes fly, but at the end of the day, it does not matter much. The important thing is that they fly, most of the time safely. I've taken the same approach re the relieve of my spasms. They went away after the angio, why? I don't know but it might not matter much. The important thing is that they went away and have not returned.
