Muscle stiffness and spasms are common MS symptoms, and are often described as 'MS spasticity'.
Muscle spasms or stiffness can affect between 40% and 80% of people with MS at some time. For most people, these are occasional symptoms.
Drugs and therapies (including physiotherapy and occupational therapy) can help you manage these symptoms.
