I'm 55 years old. Started with back pain accompanied by muscle spasms in back and tingling in big toe, then in toes and in both feet--it's constant. Sometimes feels like I'm walking on small pebbles.

I have increasing muscle spasms in my stomach area below my ribs & above my belly button. My stomach gets hard & feels like I've been socked. It comes & goes all the time. It makes me feel sick and light headed also. 11 years ago I had breast cancer & had a trans-flap plug reconstruction & a tummy tuck while I was cut open. I have now gained considerable weight. Do you think it is the tummy tuck that is too tight or is something else possibly going on.

You need to work with your doctor on this. Muscle relaxers (Norflex ,Zanaflex, etc.) work on spasms by relaxing skeletal muscles. Baclofen works on CNS caused spasticity, but not skeletal muscle spasms. Many times, it requires a combination of drugs. There is also myclonic movements and myoclonic seizures that may require anti-seizure medications (I take Tegretol and Valium.

My son is 16 and has been experiencing muscle tremors/spasms. It is an all-over body experience. It does not occur regularly and we cannot find a trigger. The best way to describe how it looks is, as if he's chilled all over and is shivering. He tenses up (when laying down) as if his stomach hurts (cramps). His facial expression is as if his head hurts or stomach hurts. He is aware and doesn't lose consciousness (as far as we know).

I just read a post from someone on rectus..something... muscle spasms under the ribs. and this is interesting because right below my rib cage on the left side (usually) my muscle grabs. If I bend over wrong , usually when I am sitting and moving my upper body down towards my lap to pick up something from floor, etc. Hurts terribly and I have to push, pull, massage, and of course I can't do anything else while it is doing it. can last for 20 minutes before it subsides.
Then, after filing your nails down to the quick, dig into your stomach to massage out those muscle knots. Search for muscle knots and massage them out the same way you would massage a friend’s tight shoulders: hunting for the ‘good’ painful muscle, and then working on that. Try using the thumb of one hand and use the other hand to help apply pressure. Try massaging in 5-10 minute bursts a few times a day. If not immediately, you should see results within a few days.
My dog began shaking and appearing to have muscle spasms in her lower body last night. She is a dachshund. She seemed fine, but when I woke up this morning she appeared to start shaking again.

I calld him about this and he prescribed Baclofen to help w/ the muscle spasms. He said that they were jsut a side effect of hte Subutex. I'm freakin' miserable, though and hte baclofen jsut knocks me out so I can't take it while at work or if I need to do anything. I don't think I can continue to take this if these are not going to pass. Has anyone else had these spasms from Subutex? If so, did they go away after a few days on the drug or what did you do?

Many thanks for your helpful reply. When I have the spasms in the diaphragm area my abdomen does not become hard. I get a pain like a stitch in my left hand side, my sternum becomes very painful and sore, like the skin has been burnt, so sore I cannot bear to touch it.

It explains alot of what is going on in your body. I still have muscle spasms, jerking and the nervousness often but have learned to deal with it a little more effectively. I had more heart/chest symtoms at first and then moved onto the spasms and such. Zoloft can take up to six weeks to start working properly and can make the anxiety worse in the beginning. I have heard good things about it though...take care and good luck. If you need to chat or just complain to someone my email is ***@****.
