You need meds to settle the spasm.

Recommend going on baclofen.

    Hi

    Since this spasm is new after all this time, one would not simply treat it.

    You need

    Full neurological exam.

    Labs: all electrolytes, calcium and magnesium.

    All routine labs.

    Structural assessment.

    I suggest you talk to your GP about a neurology consult.

    OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. Also, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, just use reply and come back. I am here
