View Full Version : 'Twisting' muscles

24th May 2012, 23:25

I'm laid in bed typing this on my laptop as I'm unable to sleep.

Despite having my quinine and baclofen, the pain in my muscles is getting to be unbearable. It feels as if they are twisting under the skin, like someone is wringing them out. I've never felt this type of pain until about 6 months ago. Is this related to MND or is it something else? Does anyone else experience this?

hi Becky.
have some problem and thing i have solution.......sometimes we have this problem cos our diet is low whit minerals.
for me its going better when i start taking Magnesium pills. in Boots You have pills call Osteocare whit Magnesium and D3.but 90 pills cost around 9
so cos I'm originaly from Poland and my sister is Head nurse in one off big polish hospital she recommend me to try something whit vit B6 and potassium ( B6 is very important to take whit magnesium cos making easier to absorb magnesium and potassium work whit cramps has well)
and after wail i fond very helpful POLISH pharmacy here in UK
Im actually on


and taken whit quinine this works for me.

Irene got relief from various muscular pains by having volterol rubbed into the skin around the site of her pains. This was usually done last thing at night and gave her a reasonably comfortable nights sleep. We used to buy it but it is probably available on prescription.
