        Hi Nettie, like you I get shooting pains like a quick electric shock.These pains were more regular a year ago in my arms.If I stretch out on the bed I often get cramp/spasms in my calves.When I bend to try and put my shoe on I get pain in my sides.If I sit still reading I mainly feel the fasciculations all over .My hands are weak..
        I try and do a few exercises daily as physio advised it might help prevent some stiffness.Nothing strenuous .I often wonder what else is going on as I used to walk a lot and eat healthier.Now I have to sit most of the day.Fleetingly think that I must be at risk of a stroke or heart attack leading such a sedentary life but it’s not by choice.Best wishes.Mary

            Hi Mary, your symptoms sound very much like yours & Matthews, some days worse than others, like you I was very physical and now sit in a chair all day not good for anybody, the only exercise I get is walking to the window to close the blinds while I use the commode πŸ₯΄ and back again πŸ˜‚ Love Janette x

              Those full-body stretch spasms are something else, aren't they Janette 😏 Impossible for anyone to bend the telegraph poles the legs have become! (Are they still called telegraph poles these days? Most cabling seems to be undergroung now, so I guess I mean street light poles πŸ˜ƒ)

                  I get calf cramps if I point my toes (plantarflexion) and stretch, like first thing after waking up in the morning, I find that if I am quick and move my my feet/foot into (dorsiflexion) the opposite direction I avoid the impending pain.

                  Both arms/shoulders affected, left worse than right.

                    Yes I find exercises that stretching the muscles that contract into spasms for me most (eg calf, thigh, hand), have helped to reduce the occurrence
