Im not sure what it is but I get what feels like pulled muscles from minor activities. I pulled 2 muscles which then cramped up swimming lightly. I pulled 2 muscles from literally sitting in a chair. I dont have to be doing anything. Its frustrating and painful and something very new for me.
Does this happen to anyone else? Is it the lyrica?
@A MyFibroTeam Member, taking magnesium, soaking in Epsom Salt or try rubbing magnesium oil or lotion May help your cramps. Magnesium is recommended for fibro sufferers
Yes it happenss to me often but i dont take lyrica. Mostly in the legs and abdomen.
I get spasms all over frequently but most often in my hands if I'm cooking or baking and holding a kitchen utensil for longer than a few seconds. It's pretty painful and the spasm contorts my hand badly, increasing the pain. When I get a spasm in my back I have trouble catching my breath. My doctor put me on Baclofen; 10 MG 3 times daily. I don't follow the prescription and only use one when/if I go into spasm. When I take the Bacoflen the spasms ease off right away. You might talk to your doctor about getting a prescription and seeing if it works for you. Namaste ..
I absolutely understand what you are saying! I have to move so carefully to sit down because if I don't, I could pull a muscle dot. Or it feels like I have done so. It is getting to the point I am afraid to move at times. I'm sorry you are suffering from this as well because I know firsthand how frustrating, exhausting, and emotional it can make you.
