Hello, Happy Easter 🐣
my muscles are burning and painful and I just can’t let them relax. I feel like I want to switch them off. I’ve had this many times since a night out in 2013 at a summer quiz held in a marquee, it was surprisingly damp and I sat on a chair with a metal frame and partially leant over the table (for four hours maybe?) felt like I cut my circulation off and when I went to bed my legs wouldn’t relax and I couldn’t sleep, i took extra Amitriptyline but woke abruptly three or four times with muscle spasms and drop foot, it was so intense, I cried in agony. The following day had weakness in my legs. The intensity of the cramps subsided but even still some 6 years later I get this twitching and inability to relax the legs. Year before I had disc decompression at L5S1 as an emergency as I’d been bed bound and locked in a foetal position for best part of a month. I was left with the inability to point my toes on that left side without producing an intense spasm that took minutes to subside and every time I moved the foot it would cramp again, so over the years I’ve particularly tried to stretch the tendons in that side. My tendons and muscles are so tight and I have 24/7 fasiculations on left side. Tbh the medical profession don’t seem particularly interested, haven’t even been offered an EMG even though neurologist witnessed the twitching. What is a good medication for this as I haven’t found anything that works, only took quinine a month and noticed feet got covered in a dotty red/purple pin prick rash. I know you can’t diagnose but have you had similar pain?
