Hi I was diagnosed in May this year and put on 20mg for 5 days then 15 mg for 3 weeks with a view to reduce every 3 weeks. I'm down to 10 mg at present.But Lately I have been getting really bad back and ribs muscle spasms and when they contract I get breathless and getting out of bed in morning is so painful. I wonder if this is some kind of flare up. I was on 10 mg , but i did hover between 12.5 and 10 mg for about 8 weeks and then reduce to 7.5 re Dr. After about 4-5 days muscle spasms kicked in. I increased back up to 10 mg. a week ago but still have the spasms. After reading on the posts here I am thinking maybe I should increase to 12.5 mg and see if it helps to stabilise . When I saw my Dr last, about 2 weeks ago, she suggested heat pads etc to help with the spasms .but continue with reduction. Have tried heat pads with slight improvement.
Any thoughts would be great.
Also I am lucky enough to be able to attend my first meeting at Port Solent on Monday, so really looking forward to speaking to others with experience.
