Yes hunni I do. Stiffness, cramps, stabbing and burning sensation... Its awful. Last night I was kept awake because of muscle spasms in my legs and toes. I've not managed to find anything that can help with this yet, but I would love to see if anyone else has found something that can help relieve these pains xx

I took cocodamol today it defo takes edge off for me I take it when I really find pain to much I also take duloxotine 30mg for anxiety xxx and hot water bottle xx


If it helps my Doctor has focussed me on anti-inflammatories rather than pain relief. A kind of - "better to remove the cause of pain than to just stop feeling it". For me it works and I have been taking Naproxen at 250mg. I started with 500mg but that made me a zombie.= with a belly-ache. (Maybe that why zombies moan so much! :-) ) I tend to take Naproxen for three days at a time when things get bad.

It is not always apparent that it is inflammation that is causing pain but it does work for me. However if you suffer the neurological issues then your sense of pain may be exaggerated and that is where the anti-depressants come in

If you do take Naproxen then my advice is don't mix it with anything else. I used a decongestant once and found to my cost that there were quite serious side effects like hallucinations and noise sensitivity. Now I just sniff salt water up my nose - not taking any more chances!
