I have been experiencing spasticity for 16 months ... in the past month, I've begun to have pain from the top of my shoulders down all 4 extremities clear to my ankles. it's a deep pain that feels like it's in my bones.
Has anyone had this experience?
It feels different than the spasticity that I experience.
Any ideas what I might be able to do, supplements to take to help relieve the deep ache?
For spasticity I have been advised to drink tonic water, pickle juice or take a teaspoon or two of regular yellow mustard. When the pain is a bit much, I normally take Aleve.
I was having horrible pain in my shoulders, upper arms and legs. I was diagnosed with yet another autoimmune disease, Polymyalgia Rheumatica, and put on steroid treatment. The pain immediately got better. You might talk to MD about this. I'd never heard of it but apparently once you have one autoimmune disease, you may have a tendency to get others. Aren't we lucky?
Hi LisaRae, I use a homeopathic medication called "Traumeel". You put 10 drops in juice or a beverage 3 times per day. It works within minutes and there are no side effects. I am 62 and have these old guy issues ontop of M.S. and C.A.D. so I am very careful what I put in my body especially meds. Another thing I dont take from years gone by are muscle relaxers especially the ones the Doc gives you. These cause Spacticity for me anyway. Theres another one called "BioSil" drops and they promote beauty-bones and joints. Hope this helps...Look it up.
My Doctor started me on Cymbalta about 3 months ago now and all the unusual body pain has completely stopped, I highly recommend it it really works.
