I have the same proximal adductor issues, and when I first get up, I can shake uncontrollably for a moment or two, and have to "THINK" myself normal. (I hope this makes sense.) While I do have spinal stenosis, as well as Fibromyalgia, my symptoms are way past their normality! I was MRI'd for the brain plaque but not seen. That was in 2004. Now that it's so many years later, I wonder... Is it MS? The other night, I spasm'ed so HARD in my sleep, I woke up with severe cramping in right calf and it extended up to my buttocks. Oh my, screaming into my pillow. I am on 16 mg of Zanaflex to STOP the spasms at night, but they tend to get so much worse in afternoon and evening. My husband is scared of one more diagnosis as all my meds (21 at this time) are leading us closer to bankruptcy, and we just don't "believe" in that! All these meds and still... symptoms that are not recognized within my current diagnosis! Anybody understand me?View Thread
I had an MRI years ago, and it showed NO evident of plaque in the brain. However, my symptoms have continued and are worsening in the past few years. Just wondering if MS can be present without that proof? Please, someone answer me.
Also, what type of doctor would make this ruling? A neurologist? A rheumatologist? I am just so worn out of not receiving answers and my health continuing to spiral. I am losing my ability to function normally societal, or family wise.. HELP!View Thread
