On gabapentin to help with night muscle spasms. Having had trouble with right hip and knee since December, fell and broke my hip 1 Aug so recovering at mo. However the right knee has been very bad with muscle spasms, causing the knee to go very tight and freeze in a raised position, and had to increase the Gabapentin to try and ease, taking it 3 times a day. On waking as I sleep on front, the right leg raises involuntarily up bending at the knee and I have to change positions to relieve.Have been to pte physio and she thinks it is the Sartorius muscle on inside of knee being inflamed causing the gluteus muscle on inside of leg to be very tight and is treating this for me. Seen the NHS physio after 7 weeks and she will not look at as may be a neuro problem. Gets very political who will deal with what, neuro physio only gives sheet of exercises and musculoskeletal physio will not deal with, hence I am paying for help.
Has anyone else had problems with really tight muscle spasms which do not pass easily? Do not want to keep increasing the gabapentin all the time? Is this to do with AMN or something else?
