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??????
