I’ve been told I never have Restless Legs Syndrome, but why do my leg muscles “spaz” so significantly?!?

Query by Guatty: I’ve been told I don’t have Restless Legs Syndrome, but why do my leg muscles “spaz” so much?!?

I’ve gone to the neurologist a lot of time for this. It started when I was tiny and my mom would say it was “expanding pains.” But I am 21 a long time old now and its obtaining worse. We’ve been to a couple different doctors now and they all say the exact same factor- that I do not have restless leg syndrome! But my leg muscles have this kind of undesirable spasms? And not only is it in my legs, more than the many years the spasms have traveled up from my calves, up my legs, into my side muscles, and starting to hit my upper back muscles and armpit muscles. The medical doctors do not know what it is. I’m on Clonazepam but it is not operating. I really feel like an idiot simply because at times I will be walking and all of a sudden my legs get weird so I walk all around doing this weird stroll. I can not assist it. This transpires all through the day, randomly, and the levels of intensity are usually various, but turning into a lot more frequent and acquiring worse. The feeling I have it like a twitchy, creepy crawly feeling. My sister understands initial hand. A few many years ago we went on a trip and had to share a bed and she stated my legs “twitch” all evening and it kept her up. I require aid? Does anybody know about anything equivalent or a remedy. I can not take this. It is actually driving me insane. I remain up crying at evening or I’ll get so frustrated for the duration of the day that I’ll break out in tears. PLEASE Support!
I’ve tried modifying my diet plan-did not work. I’ve attempted Requip & Mirapex, they produced my heart race abnormally and was taken off of them
I’ve tried shifting my diet program-didn’t function. I’ve tried Requip & Mirapex, they made my heart race abnormally and was taken off of them. Also I experience no pain when this occurs. It really is just genuinely really unpleasant and I cannot tighten my left calf muscle any longer. I can tighten my proper one but I my left doesn’t do it any longer. So I have to push on to truly difficult to settle some of the twitching.

Very first of all, take a deep breath and chill… if you had a serious disorder, it would have been diagnosed by now. You are not experiencing paralysis, weakness or any other signs aside from the weird sensations (identified as paresthesias) and the twitching (identified as fasciculations). If you are quite active physically, and you sweat a lot, you could be very low on potassium (which controls muscle function). Easily remedied by taking potassium tablets before bed.

But if I had to bet cash, I’d place my chips on “fibromyalgia”, which accounts for the weird sensations, the restless legs, and the twitches. It’s not fatal, just a discomfort in the a**. Take a minute to paste and read the link I’ve enclosed for you.

Does any person experiance terrilble pain in their neck/shoulder muscles and reduced back aches?

Question by Arab: Does any person experiance terrilble discomfort in their neck/shoulder muscles and reduce back aches?

I want an individual to help me please! Various docs say diverse points?! Men and women close to me can’t even realize. Let me make clear.

I am a 20 year old male. i am 5′ eight” 160 lbs. i don’t genuinely exersise that m uch but what ever.
About three 1/2 a long time ago when i was 17 i got into a automobile accitdent and commenced to experiance lower back aches/discomfort thereafter. when i went to the doc. he essentially said i have muscle spasms in my decrease back and gave me some muscle relaxe(which did not assist). it didnt hurt all the time just occasionaly so i just stated screw the doc and i managed. well that proggressivly got worse (last summer season it was generally hurting every day).
so i went to an orthopedic medical doctor 6 (feb 09) months ago. that doc gave x-rays and mentioned i hade a cronic sprain in my back. he gave me loratab, mobic and physical therapy. he then did a mri (mar. 25 2009) he concluded that i had bulging disc in my reduce back. he continued loratab, mobic, and took me off physical therapy. Nevertheless i got in an additional car accident (not server… hit my head on the steering wheel but no airbags) in mar 2809 aswell.
About THE 1st Component OF APRIL I Began TO HAVE A NEW Problem.
My neck and shoulder muscles started becoming tight/painfull. it commenced out mild and occasional so i went to the doc (early june 09). he ordered one more set of x-rays and c-spine mri. On june 20, 09 i got the xray/mri and the doc told me i had “damaged soft tissue” So i asked what is going on with me and he said, “You have a hurt neck”. DUH. he ordered me to contiued loratab, mobic and zanaflex and commenced physical theray yet again. I DONT KNOW no matter whether the discomfort/tightness in my neck/shoulder muscles Increased naturally or b/c of physical treatment. But by mid july it got to the point where i could not rest at evening (irrespective of how may muscle relaxers i took) even even though this was not every single night but nevertheless very regular.
BY THIS TIME I WAS FEED UP WITH MY Existing Medical doctor!!!!
I wanted a 2nd viewpoint… i got 1 at the end of july 09.
the new health practitioner (orthopedic) looked more than all prior xrays/mri and told me i had 2 “buldging disc” in my reduced back and had “irritated soft tissue” in my c-spine area. i was desperate and asked what do i do. the doc orders me an epidural in my c-spine.
on 8/four/09 i got the epidural. THAT WAS THE WORST TWO WEEKS OF MY Whole Existence!!! THE EPIDURAL Result in A Entire NEW SET OF F’ED UP SHIT. HEADACHES THAT ONLY ( AND I Indicate ONLY) GO AWAY WHEN LYING DOWN AND Far more Discomfort Around THE BASE OF MY SCULL. That is yet another story.
simply because of my complecations with the c-spine epidural i went the the ER twice. they gave me a new set of scans:xrays, ct scan, and mri and mentioned i have a doable CSF leak, stenosis of the c=spine and straighting of thej neck and two disc that are finding that are fundamentally shrinking (i can’t don’t forget the expression). the epidural assisted none and i am still obtaining pain/tighting of the muscles in my neck/shoulders and discomfort/aching in my lower back!

My heart goes out to you. This just sounds like an awful snowball of pain, misdiagnosis and mistreatment.

Does the health practitioner who ordered the epidural know what the benefits were and what your new symptoms are? Does he know you received no relief, only far more pain? Are you even now taking Lortab, or was that discontinued? It just would seem clear that you need to have one thing stronger for pain, just to commence with, but you also need to have a health practitioner who specializes in difficult spine problems. Do you have an insurance company that you can ask to recommend one particular for you? Nearby county hospitals typically will recommend medical professionals when requested. You can try either of individuals possibilities, but in the meantime make positive to communicate with the medical doctor treating you if only to get greater pain medicine even though you line up a much better doctor. I hope you locate a solution soon.

Powderpuff asked:

I’ve gone to the chiropractor a few months ago for a similar problem. He did a series of adjustments along with me doing stretches and exercises. I was only running at this time.

I now incorporated lots of strength straining with free-weights and lots of ab exercises so that this problem would not occur.

In my ballet class I had some soreness in my hips and thighs and took a pilates class the next day (along with running). I then had a tennis lesson the next day and by Saturday (today) my lower back is killing me as much as it did a few months ago. I don’t understand what’s wrong since i’ve been doing all the exercises with building up the muscles (3 times a week plus ballet makes us do abs before class). I am also having some numbness in both legs.

I am using Tiger balm patches now. What can I do until I can see the chiropractor? I am doing some stretches but is there better positions to rest in which will allow my back to relax and heal?
