What causes muscle spasms and bruises on the leg?

I have muscle spasms every once in a while, but lately i have been having them every night for the past 4 days. I was having severe muscle spasms last night. I took 2 10mg Baclofen with no relief. i dont take them often and when I do, one usually does the trick. when i woke up today, my leg was sort of bruised, but with spidery looking veins. Can the brusing be a normal side effect?

Hello,

* If the bruises appeared after intake of Baclofen tablet, then it can be considered as culprit for side effect inducing skin condition.

If the rash were present before the drug intake, a consideration of underlying dermatomyositis affecting skin as well as muscle can be considered to sort out.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
