So then after 4 years of having this crap illness I still get confused with the explanation given for spasm and spasticity .
Basically my legs get very heavy and tight throughout the day, especially first thing in the morning getting out of bed, sometimes I just cannot lift them, so I’m guessing you would call this spasticity ?
But once I sit down in the evening I tend to get jerky legs that I have no control over, also whilst this is kicking off (excuse the pun), my left leg seems to pull in at itself, really tight then relax, followed by some more jerking.
This can last for a few minutes or a few hours !
So is this spasms as opposed to spasticity ?
My MS clinic including the MS physio just seem to combine the two saying its all basically the same, which if I’m honest I think is just an easy way out of not really knowing how to explain the differences !!!
So personally, as always I think it’s best just to ask the opinions from real people who suffer the same problems.
