I have the same, in fact painful feet came along way before I was diagnosed with MS. I have my feet and calves massaged with an essential oil called Helichysum and have found this to be really helpful for me. It has made spasms much easier and my feet seem to be less painful. It’s very expensive , but one drop mixed with almond oil is enough for both legs. I also take 100mg of Gabapentin, it certainly helps me sleep better but I’m not sure about this med as I too have put on weight .

I have painful feet and restless legs and for awhile I was doing three 300mg gabapentin prior to bedtime. It didn’t help and in fact it seemed to make it worse. I scaled back to two gabapentin and one 500mg Tylenol a couple weeks ago and it’s working! I’ve been sleeping and, more importantly, getting to sleep rather quickly.

i also take 1200 gambetin and plexa slow relapse 300 per day
i woukd blme the gambetin as one of the factors forymy weight gain ,
it is a vicious circle
