One Sided Muscle Spasms That Toggle

Does anyone have muscle spasms around the hip muscles that move from one side of the body one day and the opposite side the next day?

The spasms can start at the neck and trap muscles and run down the ribs and including the waist and or hip muscles?

It is very uncomfortable and the typical Parkinson Meds don't help much if at all.

I set a timer on my smart watch for 3 times a day. I try to take 30min before my meals.

I am so thankful to hear your concern. I have been having this same kinds of pain for the last few weeks. Just when I think that I know the pattern of pain something changes. No medicine has really helped. I try to use only
Tylenol but that is not a great relief. I have some
cbd product like that you described that I have never used. I am going to try this. Due to being away from my walking schedule I am suffering with muscle issues like crazy. My neurologist suggested that I could use botox but I poo pooded the idea. I think that I will call him back tomorrow about this idea.
I am sorry that you are suffering but glad to know that I am not crazy. I wish you well in your search for relief. I definitely feel less alone for having heard your concern.

I get something like that to my feet and calves. My son's fiance gave me some Dragons Blend Cannabis herbal salve. It works amazin&ly well, it has CBD in it as well as selected traditional herbs.. Nothing you take orally ever helped as quickly .or as well. Online look for MEDICINE FARM Botanicals

I have leg and foot muscle spasms that can hurt a lot. It also can switch sides. It generally occurs at night or early in the morning. I haven’t found anything that really works. Usually I mutter a few bad words under my breath then massage and gently stretch. Hard to do on your back!

Not so far, but I do have severe leg and toe cramps intermittently.
