Exausted every day...Full body spasms.

I am so tired ALL the time,I am exausted....I get up tired,I am to drained of any energy I am almost stuck to my sofa...

 

How do others cope with this?

Is there anything the doctor can give me to give me some get up and go?

I get full body spasms usaly at night wich means my whole body goes ridgid.I had a few last night and some how my left shoulder,arm and hand got pritty crushed and twisted up..I woke in terrible pain,these spasms are causing me to wake at night and I know proberly contribute to my tiredness....

 

Just wondering if any help from the doctor of some kind would help my exaustion...

 

Hi,

You can certainly get something for the spasms - full body ones are awful aren't they. I take 50mg amitriptyline at night time, it has the added bonus of making me sleepy too so I usually sleep very well now. 

There are things you can take for fatigue - amantadine or modafinil. They don't work for everyone though, I've tried both and they don't make any difference to me. However, if you get your spasms under control, and sleep better as a result you may find you're not as tired.

Take Care, and Happy Christmas,

The first time I had full body spasms I was terrified....

I have a child at home and cannot spend my time laying down drained of energey all the time....

Thankyou for your advise I will see my doctor and see what she can do for me...

 

I hope you have a wonderfull christmas...xxx
