Leslie, I posted before about spasms and I got the same responce. I was also thought to have MS. My spasms were like charlie horse type spasms. the thing I havn't seen here is someone who gets them in the same way I do. I get them in my jaw, hands, calves, neck, anywhere I have a muscle. It's strange and very painful. I can feel the muscle spasm when I touch it. The muscle bulges and gets very hard. sometimes its a muscle I didn't even know I had. My muscles also hurt all the time now. I also feel a numbness in my hands, feet and in the lower side of my spine. I have lost alot of strenth and my left leg dosn't work very well anymore. I was just wondering if you have experianced simular symptoms. I have not been dx yet but going to UCSD next month with a working dx of lupus- vasculitis
When ever I think I know whats wrong something else comes along. I really think I have lupus but some things don't seem to jive. I have also had protein and blood in my urine at times, Shortness of breath, sun allergy, purpura, eyes sensitive to light, migraine auras, nausea, night sweats, adema, and I'm alway's tired. For the last month I have had a rash accross the bridge of my nose that expands to my cheeks. It also is on my forhead. The last symptom is when my gp said I needed a specialist. My blood test a year ago did not confirm lupus. I hope they figure this out soon. I feel so sick these days.
