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.

Kim
