I also experience horrible muscle spasms when I become stressed or upset about something. I can sit there and you can see my legs or arms just spasm and you can clearly see it across the room. I have tried everything under the sun to help and nothing has at this point. My husband just looks at me with this sad helpless look when it happens. More often than not its my arms or my legs. No particular side, and my fingers! I hope it gets easier for you.
So sorry to hear this...do you recall my ER visits for muscle spasms?
Where or which muscles are going into spasm for you?
For me, it was always my left side of my back...I thought kidney stones....and the pain would go up into my shoulders...it was so horrendous, I was unable to move....I even had vomiting with it and no-one could tell me what it was caused from...but always happened around stressful busy times. This goes back to at least 2010 0r later.
Anyway, I never got a "formal" DX since none of the Drs could figure it out...but knowing my family history I did some research and it seems mine is diverticulosis, and it calms down with a liquid diet. I have lost a lot of weight and continue to as I am in a flare up right now....my sister in law I help care for was in hospital and came home last week on hospice and I went into a flare....hmmm again always a stressful time. I also ate a few things I should be avoiding and that could have something to do with it, but it wasn't until I heard of hospice being brought in until the pain started....I knew to go to my liquid diet and my Hemp tea and CBD items, luckily this was a mild flare and not a really bad one....
Anyway, I hope it's not diverticulosis for you, but I also was under the suspicion that I was just having muscles spasms as that is how the pain starts.....let me know how you are doing.
