Does anyone else have this symptom?

I was recently diagnosed with Fibro and I have all the typical symptoms but I have one symptom that I want to ask you all about because I never hear it mentioned. I have episodes where all the muscles in my body feel like they seize up. It usually starts slowly. I feel it in my arms and the front of my neck and around my jaw first then it spreads down from there and through my legs. It doesn't really "hurt" but it is the most uncomfortable feeling to the point that it makes me nauseated. I prefer the pain to these episodes. The only thing that works is to take a muscle relaxer and lay down till it goes away. It's like getting an all over body charlie horse if you can imagine that. When I finally get up and start using my muscles again, my hands shake really bad. Do any of you have this problem? I just want to make sure it is Fibro and not something else. Thanks !!!!

I forgot to mention that at times I have blurry vision as well. It doesn't coincide with the spasms, it just happens randomly.

Re: Does anyone else have this symptom?

I have something similar but it starts in my chest and upper back then goes to my arms and neck but never lower body. All my muscle go into spasm, my doc has prescribed Valium for the spasm and this works well for me. The blurry vision I also have, have had my eyes checked out a few times now an they can find nothing wrong, another one of the joys that comes with fibro.
