I've got SPMS and one of the problems is drop-foot in my left leg. I was dignosed in 1995 and the rate of progress is v slow.
A couple of days I was woken up with the most excruciating pain in my left ankle. I think it must be cramp. Don't really get in during he day. If I get out of bed and sit in a chair them I still get the cramp, my toes also seem to lift off the ground. The cramp reoccurs every few minutes
One of the results of drop foot is that I cannot tilt my foot so heel on ground but toes and ball of foot can be lifted. So far do not get the cramp when walkng and standing on my feet durng he day.
Has anyone had this cramp at night and how did they get round the problem?. At the momemt I'm only getting about 4 hours sleep a night - not good.
Anyone got any ideas how to et rid of it. I do take 200mg quinine at night ~& magnesium tablets
