Muscle Spasm in the middle of Left Calf
 
Hello:
I've been dealing with Muscle Spasm in the middle of Left Calf for more than 10 years along with Arthritis on my fingers and Spine. Arthritis has been alleviated thanks to Meloxicam 15 mg. and Tylenol 650 mg.

However, Muscle-Spasm is hard to get under control although I've been on Methocarbamol 750 mg, 5 tabs per day which is higher than normal dosage. I get a terrible muscle spasm before getting out of the bed if cutting down to 4(four) tabs before the bed. Then, I need to keep 5 tabs every day very faithfully.

I'd appreciate it if anyone would share the experience or knowledge on Muscle Spasm in advance.

Thanks,

Dear Tori4,

How active are you? Muscle Spasm in the calf can be controlled by gentle stretches and exercise.

Esp. with arthritis you need to be doing gentle stretches and be exercising every day.
You can even do stretches before getting out of bed.
