Spasticity, again...

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Capsaicin helped my spasticity but always consume on a full belly!

flautenmusik, at one time mag citrate was the best form i knew about. later shye recommended a new form magnesium glycinate. that is what i use now. it is WAY better, no more runs for the loo! and of course the kind that gets absorbed best of all is the kind in food. dark leafy greens such as kale are a great source.

My biggest problem is vertigo. Your seems to be leg spasms. My vetigo went away after ccsvi treatment, but has returned after a short while.
I'm going back to check on my ccsvi results.
But if it can't be helped it is probably just something I will have to learn how to live with. Not that I have given up hope just yet. But Before I learend about ccsvi, I was starting to accept it. Trying to learn how to live with it. Do things that relieves it for a little bit.

There are things that medecine or surgery can't cure. Sometimes we probably just have to accept it, that we are the unfortunate ones when it comes to health, and try to focus on other more positive points of our lives. Not saying to give up hope, not saying giving up trying to become better. But just try our best to accept it. Just what I am thinking about myself sometimes.

Why is giving up hope that bad? Would you feel any of the symptoms better if you hope? Hope in MS is cheating yourself to believe that you may improve.

Since spasticity is definitely not a magnesium/potassium/uranium deficiency, has anybody ever had severe spasticity and now does not anymore? If yes, how did he/she do it?
