There are various causes of muscle spasms such as recent injury or trauma and dehydration. Typically, patients can modify activity, rest, stretch, utilize heat or ice for treatment of muscle spasms. Rarely, patients can also ...Read more
I've had muscle spasms I think are from Prozac (@30mg now). They got worse over the weekend, as in volume. Also on Wellbutrin (bupropion) (200mg). Mainly distal.
Odd side effect: And not likely. Are you sure your not dehydrated? If your not eating, your dehydrated and this is causing your spasms. ...Read more
Can wellbutrin (bupropion) cause muscle spasms and twitches? Is this ok? How can I know if I am having a seized? I'm also on Zoloft
No: Wellbutrin's side effects include muscle aches but not spasms. If you have any questions about side effects of medication it is best to ask the physician who prescribed it. You can also refer to the medication information that the pharmacy should provide with your prescription. Make sure all your physicians are aware of all medications you take to avoid medication interactions. ...Read more
Back and shoulders are knotted up from muscle spasms. I have ms. Why would the area feel hot to touch, but no where else? I'm currently relapsing.
Hip/ butt muscle spasms on left side like charlie horse. Recent MS dx. Possible symptom? Very painful lasted 2 days already. Suggestions?
SOME THOTS: Pain is very common in ms, and can present numerous ways, and even migraine is present in ms pts at a frequency of 2-4 times normals. However, your muscle spasms could represent a separate process in hip, back, pelvis. (unlikely, but if you were given steroids, check for avascular necrosis in hip). Lastly, do not want to second guess your doc, but there are oral meds now (no needles). ...Read more
I have been diganosed with both trigeminal neralgia and occipital neuralgia. I also have some memory problems and muscle spasms. Could I have ms?
Challenging?: You seem to have very complex issues, and I would certainly wonder about an underlying unitary diagnosis. Ms could cause fatigue, memory loss, and trigeminal neuralgia, but usually not occipital neuralgia. Maybe MRI of brain and spinal cord could illuminate the picture. Might also want to check for lupus, lyme disease, and even hiv. Perhaps get full evaluation at a local medical school. ...Read more
Muscle spasms legs, feet and side back come and go, mild but noticeable. Had for 1 month. Is it MS, ALS will I get paralysed?
No: Someone has been reading too many medical horror stories. It is mega highly unlikely that spasms in an otherwise healthy 20 year old represent anything but overuse or electrolyte disturbance. The diseases you mention generally do not begin like that. See your family doc for an evaluation and reassurance of the correct diagnosis, so you can get this problem resolved. ...Read more
Could I have multiple sclerosis even if my MRI was normal? I have a lot of the symptoms (muscle spasm, weakness, tingling down my back and legs), but my MRI didn’t show anything. Can an MRI miss ms?
Typically not: Mri is the most sensitive test available to aid in the diagnosis of ms. While there are rare cases of MRI negative ms, the vast, vast, vast majority of patients with ms have MRI abnormalities. Having said that, given your symptoms it would be important to know if the cervical and thoracic spinal cord were imaged. If brain and spinal cord imaging negative then not likely to be ms. ...Read more
Do I have a vitamin B12 deficiency or MS? I'm 19, female with tingling, numbness in head/scalp, feet, legs, and hands. Muscle spasm? Anxiety maybe?
Numb/tingling in hands, legs, and feet on both sides. Muscle spasms in legs, back and arms. Loss of balance, dizzy, stiff. Is it Neuropathy or ms?
Bad choices: You probably don't need or want to pick A or B. Both require a doctor's DX and TX and it might be another thing altogether. A common cause of neuropathy is a diabetic condition w/ other signs too - are you a diabetic? Get into care if 'yes'! MS usually starts a bit later in age. Have an exam to find an answer. Best! ...Read more
Is there one medicine for spasticity and muscle spasms? Associated with neuropathy. Which is recommended??
It could: I don't hear about "twitching", but I do hear patients say that wellbutrin (bupropion) can cause a jittery or tremulous feeling, especially at first. This can be dose-dependent (ie, a lower dose might help), and it may improve with time. It's important to stay well hydrated, especially in hot weather. ...Read more

Used to be extremely strong until geodon (ziprasidone) risperdal celexa wellbutrin cogentin. Now body feels muscles are not supporting joints or strengthening body?
Go see your doctor: I can't tell if you're taking both Geodon (ziprasidone) & Risperdal at same time as these are both antipsychotics and can affect your muscle tone. Tell your prescribing physician (psychiatrist, right/) what's going on. You may need adjustment of dose and/or regimen. ...Read more

Many reasons: Muscles in our body contract and relax consciously and unconsciously. A muscle that involuntarily contracts without our consciously willing it is called a "spasm." if the muscle maintains a sustained "spasm", it becomes a cramp, as can be seen with exercise.

Depends on so: Many things, but two common easy to fix things are dehydration and magnesium deficiency.

If not, may need to see your physician to rule out minor metabolic issues or medications that could be making these worse. ...Read more

There are other causes that wll be need to be checked. ...Read more
Pain: Usually muscle spasm is the bodies attempt to stabilize a bone or joint that hurts. It is seen most often in association with back and neck pain. As the muscle spasm continues, metabolites of muscle contraction build up in the muscle which add more soreness to the pain. Treatments can be aimed at reliving the source of the pain or relaxing the muscle spasm. ...Read more
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes.
