Hello,
at the moment my legs are stupid sad . I have spasticity in both legs . The last two days i was at home, because the way to my work is too long and driving with my car is not a good idea. Normally the spasticity disappears after a few days. Are you waiting for improvement or are you taking medicine?

Many Greetings from Germany

Mathias

Hey Mathias

Good to see u again! I'm so sorry about u'r legs! Are u taking any meds for this?? I do believe many here are using Bacflocan for spasticity. Maybe ask u'r doc about that and Physical Therapy as well. When is u'r next appt??? If it's not soon, u should go ahead and call for an appt or see if they can work u in soon. Take care friend...and good idea on the not driving! Please let us know how u'r doing and what the doc says.

I don't take meds. I do still drive -- a car with automatic anti-lock brakes and automatic transmission. The Baclofen is a pretty common drug, and I think available in Germany. Take care.

Thank you for the replies. In Germany you get Baclofen if you have a very bad spasticity. The doctors are not convinced of it, because you lose your strength. At this moment i don't get a medicine against the spasticity. Every Week i get Gymnastics and one times in the Year i go in a MS-Center an the doctors check the Therapy. I hope it will be better if I have a little bit recreation. Next Week i meet a neurologist. Thank you very much
