Ask Dr. Townsend Q&A's
Name: Tisanna

I was wondering if perimenopause can include muscle spasms? I have many perimenopausal symptoms in addition to muscle spasms primarily in the legs and feet but occassionally in the arms chest and buttocks. I also twitch and lot of tingling. I also can't sleep at night (going to sleep after many hrs and waking up after a couple of hrs). I mostly concerned about the muscle twitches and spasm. Any help you could provide would be immensely appreciated.

Perhaps you have a variant of fibromyalgia. Ther are a number of this to try but there isn't enough time to go into detail
