I have muscle spasms and cramps everyday and no medicine, so far, has helped. I wake up with 'charlie horses' in my legs most everyday. Who the heck is Charlie and what does it have to do with a horse? LOL!! These spasms are so bad sometimes and they last a long time. The worse one I get is a cramp that starts at my sternum, off to the right a bit, and extends past my belly button. It doubles me over in extreme pain and lasts a good 15-20 mins. It has come on when I sneezed in the car while driving, when I bent over to tie my shoe, when I try to sit up in bed using my muscles in the front of me, etc., etc. My Dr. said he's never heard of this happening to anyone else. He's a really good dr. and has many FM patients. It's happened 3 times in the car and it's really scary trying to pull over and park while it's happening. I have to straighten up so I get out of the car and deal with it standing up. My mom was with me the time that it happened when I sneezed. She wanted to drive but until the pain went away, I couldn't even get back in the car. Sitting down while it's happening makes it worse. So, has anyone else experienced this in this area of their body??????

Maybe my underweight or poor nutrition, a lack of minerals or...
My mother has been on drugs from the time I was 3 weeks old to now. She's used every drug I can think of, her main choices being heroin and meth in the past, her current favorite being much more mild. For anybody else out there who loves/has lived with an addict, they can definitely be abusive. I grew up being left in the living room alone many days, not taken to school, with just the TV on to...
