    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Dear MSRN2001,

    Muscle spasms are very common with MS. There are several medications that treat this symptom including (but not limited to) baclofen, zanaflex, valium, and botox injections. A stretching program may help your muscles relax and reduce spasticity. Ask your doctor about physical therapy and medications if the spasms are keeping you awake at night or causing pain and limited mobility.

    Hope this helps.
