I have often posted the I got relief for leg jerking and spasming from magnesium, but right now, the past few weeks, this is out of control. I am wondering if anyone has taken steroids for this? That would usually be prednisone I suppose, but I can't take it. I can take Kenalog shots, a form of cortisone, and had it when skin itching was bad, and it helped. I am seeing the P.A. tomorrow, and I wonder if I should suggest Kenalog again, for this. Do you find help for spasms and jerkiness from steroids?
I am awake half the night with this. Obviously it's getting a lot worse than it was. I have never taken steroids for any neurological flares, not even ON, because my neurologist when I had the ON did not believe in using steroids for ON. I recovered from the ON without steroids.
This, however, is keeping me awake almost every night. Sometimes it starts in the evening before bedtime.
