Forearm cramps and MS?
Was DX'd 2003 with mild to moderate cervical stenosis, but maybe 2 years prior noticed slight left arm weakness. The dx was as a result of whiplash from auto accident. The last couple of months when moving my left forearm into a particular position, the top major muscle will cramp along with my thumb, pinky, and ring fingers. The cramp can be stopped by stretching out the arm. If moving the hand alone into a position resembling a spastic spasm, the left hand will cramp, also relieved by stretching.
I've read to my surprise that forearm cramps can be a symptom of MS. Other than symptoms associated with the cervical stenosis, which were successfully treated with oral steroids and anti-inflammatories, I can't recall any standard MS symptoms.
A question for MS sufferers: if you have forearm cramps, would you describe their exact nature of onset, please? Mine do have a trigger point. Are yours similar? Thanks.
