I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Is there anything homeopathic I can do about spasticity ?

I have be diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and have spasticity problems. I take calcium, MSM, bilberry , a super B complex, a multi vitamin and ldn everyday. I m hoping to find something to help control the spasticity I suffer from. I lost health insurance when I had to quit working and am considered uninsurable (the one company that would give me a policy was !AMAZINGLY! expensive, preexisting condition is the phrase I hear). So, I guess I m hoping/looking for something affordable that might help. PLEASE don t say go to the doctor ... see the insurance comment previously.

Dear Dumb jerk
Going by herbal medicines in your case the drug of choice is ginkoba biloba. In addition to this supportive medicines which are considered as brain tonics or medhya in ayurveda also help. Amongst these medicines Brahmi with gold and vrihat vat chintamani ras give good results.

Hi, Welcome to healthcaremagic forum,
Why u are so scared to consult a doctor.
As u dont want to go to a doctor, let me tell you that your problem is not like a simple cough, cold , fever which can be solved with home remedies. No one can treat u simply by prescribing u as u want. If u want a proper & reasonable treatment consult a good homoeopath. Proper medicines, good diet, excercise & physiotherapy will certainly help you become better.
Takecare.

Am female, caucasian, 55 in Pacific NW. Noticed ringing in my left ear several months ago, but have since been tested and hearing not impaired. It has since subsided. Pain in left BUTT cheek started after a moderate ellyptical workout in mid-June. Pain constant, rainging from 1-8, but much worse during/after sleep. Wake up out of dead sleep with aching so severe, can t get back to sleep. Massage and chiropractic doesn t help. Even muscle relaxant - diazapam 2mg, doesn t completely get rid of it. Can sometimes worsen pain by putting pressure around L5 (which is severely degenerated, I am told) but doc doesn t believe this is the cause of the pain I m experiencing. We ve been unable to find a consistent trigger point to try corticosteroid injection. New symptom, Last few days have been waking with one of both arms going numb during sleep. Thought I was just sleeping wrong on one side, but last night both arms were affected sleeping on back. Woke up, shook them out and am fine. But this morning, pain in BUTT cheek is about 6, and leg down to toes is a bit tingly. FYI Been experiencing leg spasticity for last 15 years (noticed after onset menopause at 38). Mostly impedes sleep. Sometimes so severe (letf leg all the way up to groin) Feels like a vise applied around girdle. I hyperventilate and feel like am going to pass out, Only thing can do is walk it out. You can see the legs in both calves undulate involuntarily most days, regardless of whether am exercising, or sedentary. Get good hydration daily, but crave salt. Take magnesium and potassium supplements, but have avoided calcium since it seems to make the spasticity worse. Any help or recommendations appreciated. barbis

Hi: I have relapsing and remitting MS. My MRI's have been stable since my diagnosis in 2008. I do have an array of symptoms such as cognitive difficulties, fatigue, muscle spasticity, muscle fatigue, difficulty sleeping, trigiminel neuralgia, numbness, and several other issues. I have had these symptoms some steadily, and some come and go in occurance and severity but often times can be quite debilitating. How come they never show up on the MRI? The MRI is always stable and no new lesions have shown up. Initially I had three markers in the spinal fluid, a couple lesions in the brain and a lesion in the neck plus half my head was numb and one leg was numb. Initially I had steriod infusions which really helped. Numbness comes and goes in certain areas. Sometimes my whole body tingles numb especially if i am tired. I would think this would show up on the MRI but nothing new ever shows.

I am doing a case study for school and I have a question. Symptoms are over the past few weeks and have worsened. Weakness, spasticity in the right leg, difficulites with balance, fatigue and malaise . Lab results reveal abnormalities in CSF and MRI brain scan. Diagnosed with MS. Can you describe in detail how the deterioration of nervous system strength and stability causes the physical symptoms.?
