loss of muscle mass

I have experienced numbness in my fingertips (both hands, now) and am loosing muscle mass in my right leg.
I also have a constant tension (spasm?) in my right calf.  This pain at times requires that I take pain relief.  I am presently taking Zanaflex at night so that I may sleep.  The leg spasm increases while sleeping and the muscles in my upper leg also go into a spasm.  Sometimes  getting up and walking  relieves the pain. When it is focused in my knee area it is almost unbearable. My neurologist has ruled out all major causes and has no answers for me other than to send me to a pain clinic, hence the Rx for Zanaflex. I have found a great degree of relief with NUCCA  treatments, but nothing is stopping the loss of muscle mass. Any suggestions?
