as a c5-7 it would not be unusual to have upper extrem. twitching/spasms
- many of us get 'em - but the leg is often associated with something
further down [i'm a C6/7-T1, L1 S1]
is it 'possible' to associate with ms? sure - but not the most likely
given your spinal involvement
the more common trigger 'is' initiated by the spinal cord below an area
of spinal cord injury
i've had it for more than a decade - usually right leg/foot, much less
on left side
the more i 'force' myself to hold positioning, the more likely i'm going
how is your lower lumbar and sacral?
Hi Paul, Sorry it took so long to respond I try my best but put rest first.
I am aware of the upper extremities with the cervical spine however I've
been told from the Doctors that cervical neurological disorders can also
effect your bladder, bowel movements, as well as other neurological
disorders like clonus. Almost every part of my body has either spasmed,
shaken violently, vibrated, etc... including my cheek. My Doctor stated my
condition is much like a stroke patient or even someone with parkinsons.
Because I also had the pituitary adenoma he can not rule out that part of
the brain as well as the spine causing some of my issues. BTW I've developed
lower back problems from this too so who knows. There are two areas
mentioned were scoleosis is mild or minimal, a bulging disc in the lumbar
area, something with kyphotic(?) and lordotic curve straightening (which is
normal with fusion). Take care and thanks for responding.
