I too get throat spasms its like it just locks up and its seems to be for about a minute but its probably seconds too but it is frightening. I told my doctor and he put me on a muscle relaxant Bacolfen. Unfortunately this affected all my muscles and I kept falling and even though I reduced the dosage it didn’t help my throat problem and made my legs much worse so I came off it. Mine seems to come in fits and starts sometimes its not there and at other times its a real problem. I’ve had it for a number of years and it hurts when it happens and is frightening but like everything else with MS - I’m putting up with it. But I would be interested to hear if you get anything to help.
[/quote] hi Mary, yes its really scary isn’t it. The pain is so intense but for a short length of time, yes we put up with it and when its , over you think thankgoodness, but it scares me everytime, its almost like my whole throat is going into spasm and I am not going to be able to breath or I am going to choke,. I try to keep calm and it goes away but it certainly is scary. if you have the same thing then it probably is ms. do you feel like your tonsils and side of your face and throat are going into spasms? please Pm me because judging from the response i have had from this thread this seems to be an isolated thing
