Relaxed muscles, smooth and striated

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

Relaxed muscles, smooth and striated

After 24 hours of thinking and Cece's suggestion that the following article is appropriate for the General Discussion forum, I am adding it here:

(Kudos to dania for the initial post, "Relaxed muscles are 'shorter than short'", in the CCSVI forum: post179761.html#p179761)

On May 17, 2009, msmything had posted in General Discussion:

I'm getting so spastic, my shoulders are almost in my ears. I put a business suit on the other day and I couldn't understand why the sleeves were so long..it used to fit.It was my arms that were short.

Muscles are mentioned so often in our postings that I begin to think they are fundamental to the problems of MS. For many of us, symptoms began, but neurological testing was normal at first. Could bladder problems, constipation, foot drop, tremors and ataxia, etc. be the result of "relaxed muscles"? This discovery in Australia seems VERY important. Of course, I suspect that relaxed muscles might be the result of insulin resistance.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"

absolutely and this is why MS is so similar to Myasthenia Gravis where muscles cannot conctract properly... However I believe it is from s defenseive mechanism, as if the body was trying to "squeeze" the damn bugs that have invaded the nerve... And then if the muscle spams enough to jerk, that means it has killed the germ until next time it is invaded again... That s how I feel it..

the opposite of relaxed muscles, i'd suspect - at least as far as ms is concerned.

ms patients who test low in serum magnesium (ie 0.90 or lower) would likely benefit from optimizing status.

magnesium, although recommended by klenner for both ms and mg, would not necessarily be the proper thing for myasthenia gravis patients:
