thanks linda for the reply. I have a call in to my doctor. I have the numbness/tingle sensation in my tongue and lips which moves to my upper mouth so dry mouth doesn't help those symptoms when they come up. Thanks again and glad the baclofen is working for you.
Thanks Gretchen for the reply.
I should hear from the doctor today.
Let us know what he says. Keep us posted as to how you are feeling. By the way, I tried flexeril. I wasn't on it long due to the fact that it did not work for me. I would have been super unhappy about the constipation!!! I deal with that constantly anyway.
I got a call from the doctors nurse and they said they are calling in the baclofen 10mg and I can take 1/2 if I want since I have such a sensitivity to meds. They also told me the results of a repeat brain MRI which was no new lesions and nothing active and the first thoracic MRI results which was 1 very old lesion at T9. They said it was inactive and had been there a long time. That would explain my rib tightness over a course of the last 6 years that no one could explain. I will keep you posted on how the baclofen works for me. Thanks again for all the support from everyone.
Hey Cindy, that’s great! I am really sensitive to meds too, and started out cutting my baclofen in half as well. I initially had problems with baclofen heightening my vertigo, but after I took it at night for a while that went away. I can now take the full dose during the day (lately it's been twice a day), with no side effects at all. I hope it helps you…let us know.
