    I use powdered magnesium for my cramping muscles. you can get that at health food shops here in Aust... not sure there.

    I get a lot of cramps too, especially if i am not exercising or not eating properly.

    good luck i hope someone here can help you find a diagnosis.

    Re: 31 year male spasma muscle promblems

    personally,i think you are probably on the best possible track in order to gain answers by going to see the neuro.it does sound like something isn't 'firing' right within your brain or the muscles themselves.if depakote actually helped or held back the symptoms,it would possibly indicate that this is stemming from a problem within the brain since depakote is a form of mood stabilizer.my son was on this for a couple years,but not for what you have.hopefully the neuro will be able to tell you whats going on and be able to treat it properly.please let me know what you find out. good luck, **

    Re: help me please ...muscle spasma at 31 years old

    is it like a twitch? that starts at your toes and continues to your head maybe even you scalp??? I hav that and it was the neurologist that found out what was causeing what I have. I was haveing a side affect to a medication.. the med was called lyrica..that I take for Fibro.... I still take it just not as much... I take 100mg 4 times a day and if I take it 2 (100mg) 4 times a day like the prescriptioin reads ... I get that twitch... I think it is like Reatless Legf Syndrom all over the body. I bet you know what I ame talking about... I don't know if this helps you at all but you know it helps me just to talk about it to some one who doesn't seem to care anymore because they are just tire of it all
