I get really bad spams in my leg. Would love to know on ways you cope with CMT really getting me down. My Drs are no good unless its to give me meds.. Much Grateful to any Help you can give me.. Thanks
There is no cure for CMT, but physical therapy, occupational therapy, braces and other orthopedic devices, and even orthopedic surgery can help.
Try these links.
I use weekly massage to deal with muscles. I also have significantly reduced the amount of physical activity I'm doing. Ankle-Foot Orthotics can also help because the spasms may be due to you compensating for weakened muscles by using other muscles (like tightening your calf to prevent "foot-drop" and thus tripping).
You might want to try cannabis (marijuana) for immediate relief from muscle spasticity and neuropathic pain. Spasms from CMT can be similar to muscle spasms from MS and thus often respond to the same treatments...
