Welcome Renee and Scotty-
Sorry you find yourselves here, but this is a good place for support and learning how to deal with MS symptoms. Sounds like you both have some painful spasms and MS hugs.
My husband's spasms have been greatly relieved with diet and supplements (his are in his legs mostly, sometimes his diaphragm- the MS hug). The one supplement that helped spasms the most for him is magnesium. Use the search function (upper left corner) and you'll get lots of posts on magnesium supplementation. That, and vits. B12, D and the minerals zinc and calcium have taken the edge off the pain for him. He also exercises regularly on his bike or elliptical machine, and that helps, too. It's a scary when these symptoms start showing up, but there is relief- just knowing what they are can help you deal with them.
Husband dx RRMS 3/07
dx dual jugular vein stenosis (CCSVI) 4/09
