Muscle Cramping And Twitching, No Reflexes, Swelling

Muscle Cramping And Twitching, No Reflexes, Swelling

Does anyone else experience severe muscle cramping, tightness and extreme soreness in their leg and back muscles. I am on magnesium, and my blood levels show up normal. I also have small muscle twitching at random places all over my body. I also have no reflexes in legs and feet. I also have swelling in my hands, lumps inside my elbows and behind my knees, these lumps are sore when pressed.

Also, have you tried adding calcium to your diet? Sometimes low calcium can cause sore legs too. If the bumps travel anywhere other than those two… read more

Muscle Weakness, Twitching, Shaking, Tremors...

Muscle Weakness, Twitching, Shaking, Tremors...

I was wondering, for those who deal with the above muscle issues, does yours come and go depending on the day/week? For example, some days I will have no muscle twitching or fasciculations, and then all of a sudden, it will all hit me like a truck and I'll spend days feeling extremely weak, exhausted, and having twitching and fasciculations throughout my whole body.

The past few days have *really* sucked in this respect!

I can’t say I get them a lot, but I do occasionally.

Muscle Twitching Remedies

Muscle Twitching Remedies

So this is week 3 with constant muscle twitching. It would happen all over a few times a day, then settle in on my right leg/knee for over a week, and now it’s on my left foot this week. I can see it twitching under the arch of foot and I had extreme itchiness on my foot as well. Im on week 2 of magnesium but it’s not helping. Anyone experience this or have anything that can help? I see a neurologist on Monday so I’m hoping for answers. Thank you guys!

Extreme Muscle Weakness?

Extreme Muscle Weakness?

being new to fibro I never really know what to expect. I see people posting about being really tired or not being able to do much because of the pain, but does anyone else have days where your muscles are so extremly weak you can hardly get off the couch? All my muscles feel heavy and it takes so much effort to get up. I couldn't even sit up to eat supper tonight. So very frustrating :(

Twitching Muscles

Twitching Muscles

Morning all. Please could any one let me know what their muscle twitching feels like. Mine seems to have ramped up these last few days and is everywhere non stop. Some are just the random single twitches and others are those that go on continuously in the same spot for days. Then some are the really intense fasticulations. No muscle is spared lips, legs, shoulders and the tummy ones are the strangest. Would be good to hear from others and hopefully put my mind at rest that not the only one… read more
