Hello,

I am wondering how many experience all over muscle cramps and twitching. I have contstant visible twitching in my calves for years, and daily cramps, mostly hands, feet, back and ribs, but rarely legs or arms, just constant heavy, tight feeling in arms. How have you handled the cramping, daily cramps mean constant pain in these areas.

Yes I have the daily cramping, burning, aching. the twitching disturbs me though lol, I don't like when that happens. If I wasn't exhausted so often, I think I would deal with the daily pain so much better. its hard to hide the tiredness from the face after a full day of being...im fine!

Have u guys had your vitamin D checked lately .most Fibro folk have very low vit D. It will make u cramp and twitch a lot. Ask your Dr for a blood test,as just taking OTC vitamin won't be enough if it's low,

hello, and welcome..

as you know from reading my what is firbomyalgia post.

its the muscles sending thousands of messages to the brain to send pain.
they will cramp from those messages.

i have tried muscles relaxers and got very little relief. buy some is better than none.
you need the vit D and you need to work the muscles.

best to keep moving so they will reduce the messages to the brain.

swimming is great! and you will get the vit D when you do it.
