I was wondering if anyone else suffers with spasms in their legs, and if so, do you know what is causing them?
I seem to get them in the morning as I start to move while still in bed. I can only describe it as feeling like I am stretching my legs, but they are doing it themselves. When it happens, my feet draw inwards and sideways into a strange position. I also notice that my back arches slightly and I also feel tightening in my lower abdomen. It just seems to do it once or twice while I am in bed.
Then when I am having breakfast, if I get up to go and pour a cup of tea (for instance) I get them again while I am standing still. Again in my thighs and lower abdomen. Once I get moving for the day, I don't generally get them again, although I have got them after sitting for a long time, when I first get up. I wouldn't say that it is painful, but it is very noticeable and the muscles tighten strongly.
I have just read that spasms in the legs can be a symptom of cervical spinal stenosis, so I am posting it here.
I hope that someone else out there know what I am talking about.
