    Hi, I'm new here, but did write in about muscle spasms. At night I get woke up because of them at times. I also have DDD of the lumbar, and cervical spine, but is this also related to Fibro/CFS? Has anyone had those problems?

    HI there and welcome! I dont get muscle spasms but do jerk myself awake at night (like tonight) and keeps me up all night somtimes. Muscles jerking but not painful like spasms.

    I hear that people with muscle spasms lack protien and sometimes just a bananna or two a day helps alot?

    The jerky thing I get is Restless Leg Syndrome and dont know why its so bad latley?

    Take care of you! Codey

    You will find loads of information from some very informed people.
    I never had too many muscle spasms, but I understand magnesium helps with them. Good luck.

    Nice to have you here. There are several on the board who have similar back problems. I'm sure you will find lots of info and support on this board. It is a great place!

    Princess2:

    I have DDD and do not think it is related to FM, although IMHO. The doctor always circles this on the ICD receipt, along with FM.

    Welcome.
