I have a muscle condition where my muscles are continuously spasming. This creates pain and cramping of my muscles.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I was diagnosed with myotonic chondrodystrophy or Schwartz Jampel syndrome. My symptoms are myotonia (spasms) and muscle cramping. I’ve had this my entire life but always thought it was normal. My arms, legs, fingers, toes. Eyelids, etc are all constantly twitching. I went in for carpal tunnel symptoms and was further worked up to find a mutation on a gene that is linked to this condition. It has gotten worse with age - my muscles heal a lot slower than they used to.
