Cramping?

I've been having a lot of muscle cramps lately all over my body. And they are very painful. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it from the fibro? Or should I make a sooner appointment with the doc? It's just flat out strange, I've never had these symptoms before. I had to pull over on the side of highway to try and ease the cramp in my hip today. I can't really drive right now since I don't know what might be triggering them. And I do apologize if there has been a post like this before.

Re: Cramping?

Same here both cramping and spasm, really annoying but part of my fibro life.

Re: Cramping?

Are there any medicines to treat it? Or am I just SOL and have to rely on the pain meds. They don't seem to help the actual cramping and spasms.

Re: Cramping?

If anyone out there knows of a med to stop the cramping of muscles, please let us know. I have cramping every day all day. But I was also told I might have an autoimmune disease so I will be going to a specialist next week. But the cramping really hurts!!

Boy does it hurt! Have to agree with you there. I've also been having shooting pains down the side of my neck. I just don't know whether to call my doc, make a sooner appt or just wait another month and a half. I guess I'll just have to see how long this is going to last. The worst is getting a terrible cramp while driving. I'm afraid I'm going to run off the road or hit someone, so I haven't been able to drive.

Re: Cramping?

I agree, it hurts like hell. I take flexeril for the spasms. There are other muscle relaxers out there as well. I also use my TheraCane to help work out the spasm at home. If I catch them at first twinge I can stop most of them

Re: Cramping?

Flexeril is a good muscle relaxer if u can take it...I take it and it works great for me. Hope you find something that works for you soon...Those muscle spasms can be bad news for sure.
