I was diagnosed with MD about 15 years ago. I had a easy go for quite awhile but lately have been relapsing. My doctor put me on Tysabri and Ampyra. I have only had 2 Tysabri infusions and been on Ampyra for a little more that 2 months.
I am due to have third infusion next week but I am plagued by full body spasms, especially during sleep. This week I had three in my head, very scary! Has anyone else experienced spasms in head and how long do spasms last, do they go away after a while? Thank you
