Tysabri and muscle spasms

I have MS and infuse with Tysabri. I am having severe muscle spasms.

Diclofenac in conjunction with Tysabri

I take Tysabri for multiple sclerosis. I am struggling with arthritis pain, as I can't take immuno suppresant therapy with Tyasabri. My only drug allergy is to sulfa.

Of course, the best judge of what is safe for you to use is going to be your doctor. ## What pain pill can help nerve pain from a severed arm, plus chronic ankylosing spondylitis? ## I receive a Tysabri infusion for M.S. - Can I take Diclofenac for muscle pain?
