    I know its personal but I have to

    When I go to the bathroom. Most of the time when I clean myself.

    I go into spasms in my rib cages. From the stretching motion I guess. Does anyone else?

    Embarrassing to tell my doctor lol

    I get spasms for anything I do but this sux the worse.

    I saw yoga in bed on TV. thought I would try it.

    I went immedently into spasms lol

    After one stretch. guess I need to slow down. Sorry just being funny.

    I feel it is such a pain to have spasms. I get them all over all the time.

    In the middle of a sleep to. In my calves. And I don't dare stretch in the mornings lol

    I will tell the doctor and see, I just don't need more meds I think. I am drugged enough.

    AmbienCR 12.5
    miripex 125 (4 a night)
    Tramadol 3 times a day
    neuronyin twice a day

    I'm from Chester, VA. The only thing I know about in Powhatan, is the Second Chance Animal Shelter that we support when we can.

    I get the muscle cramps/spasms when I am trying to back the truck up and I turn around. Sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't.

    I don't know a solution to it though.

    I have this same thing. I also did not say anything to my

    doctor. I then went to the emergency room about a month ago

    with chest pain again. They had me turn on my side all the

    sudden and the spasm happened. I was almost screaming. The

    nurse was like that is not what you are in here for though,

    but you should have it checked out with your doctor. I went

    to the doctor and he said that it could be my Gall Bladder

    or possibly because I take water pills that it is because I

    am too low on potassium.

    Hope you feel better. I know how much those hurt. I am in

    the bathroom at work sometimes and I want to scream out

    because I am having one, and tell them to 911, but I don't

    because I could just see having to have the ambulance

    personal come in the restroom with me on the toilet.

    How embarrassing that would be.

    I get a spasm just under my ribcage quite frequently. I have some herniated discs in my lower back in addition to the fibro.

    I get spasms in my back, too. So, I'm not sure how much of that is disc- or fibro-related.

    I'm sure I've been no help at all:)

    BTW, I take a regulare course of muscle relaxers and they seem to help.

    ilovecats94 hi there in Chester, that is where my family live. Unless you are someone related to me hmmmmmm ROFL

    I feel it is the FM causing the spasms and will speak to my doc on my next app. I get them all over. if I move in any stretching way.

    I even get them when changing gears on our 4 wheeler. (uses my foot) I will get them in my legs from doing this
    ( rolling eyes)

    So much to tell my doctor..maybe we should do lunch...rofl
