Answer

Spasticity in patients with incomplete or complete spinal cord injury (SCI) or multiple sclerosis (MS) can vary greatly in location and degree. Spasticity often is worse at night or with fatigue. Chronic compression of nerves secondary to spasticity may lead to problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
