I get similiar muscle twitches in all sorts of odd places.........When I was first dx'd, I asked my neuro about these, and they would say it was not MS. I have come to the conclusion that unless I am having a major MS attack that fits the "clinical definition" that all of my other symptoms are dismissed from being MS related. Now that my rant is out of the way, what can you do about your spasms or twitches? The few things I have found that help are: 1. Rest when I am tired. Sometimes I have noted that these types of spasms surface when I have overexerted myself. 2. Keep a check on your vitamin and mineral levels. The two that seemed to make the most difference in the area of spasms or spasticity are B12 and magnesium. 3. If the spams or twitches are in an area that can be stretched, stretching that muscle sometimes helps it to relax. I have gotten pretty inventive on how to stretch a lot of muscles.
Have you been diagnosed with MS or suspect MS? Or are you concerned that your spasms indicate MS? Just wondering, because it is a big difference.
Thanks for your response, and I completely understand what you're going through so many doctors have just dismissed things it's so frustrating LOL.
So far I have not been officially diagnosed but many things have been pointing there, from a few different doctors.. I'm just wondering if it could be spasticity or something like that since its been going on for so long, And happening in so many different places..
Right now I'm getting about 2400iu of my vitamin d, and 290mg of Magnesium. I don't think I'm getting too much of anything because this happened before it was taking my vitamins, I am waiting until I can get some blood tests and recommendations from the doctor to see if I need to take anymore.
