I've recently been experiencing intense crushing muscle spasms in my torso. They are excruciating and come on suddenly with no warning. They seem to be coming more frequently and for longer periods and I am finding them so distressing. During an episode I sweat profusely and it takes the breath out of me. The pain is so intense I can't walk. I take lyrica and baclofen already and spend so much of my life sleeping..now my few hours awake are blighted with these crushing attacks. Has anyone else experienced these or have any advice. My Dr is running some blood tests but feel he is only humouring me and not taking this seriously at all...but it is ruining my last strands of quality of life.....
I'm Mo and wanted to say that I can relate to all your symptoms. I also have the same crushing pains and despite taking Lyrica and other tablets, nothing helps. I too sleep a great deal and also sweat profusely. So much so that I don't go out much these days, I just can't stand the hot weather either. I'm sorry that I don't have any answers and can't really advise you other than to say take each day as it comes. My life revolves around Fibro and I am unable to make plans, as I don't know how I'm going to feel. I try to know my limits and don't try to overdo things on my good days either, otherwise I'm wiped out the day after. I had an attack which wiped me out for 3 days last week and felt slighlty better on the 4th day, unfortunately you have to learn to give in to it and be patient until you feel better.
Sorry I cannot be anymore helpful, but I'm here if you need to chat.
