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.

In brief: Comments

I am perplexed regarding your MS, as you do not list any medication to treat this.
Is this an omission? Your back and shoulder issues could be secondary to facet or discogenic dysfunctions within vertebral columns, but a spinal cord lesion from MS could be a cause. If you are truly having an MS relapse, critical to treat ASAP.

In brief: Spasm

Muscles that spasm have to use energy to keep contracting and this produces heat.
