You have been a busy girl today! Welcome to the board. I am sorry that you are having such a rough time right now. That all sounds pretty miserable. I have had the toeing in problem before due to spasticity. I have had botox as a localized treatment and I have taken baclofen. You have a great perspective on your life ( I loved what you said on the "evolution" thread).
Again, welcome to the board. You have a lot to offer so please feel free to post often.
Love and prayers,
I had the botox about ten weeks after a really bad flare. It went really well. They located the spot to inject pretty quickly and injected and it took about an hour before you could reallly see a difference. The doctor thought I would need it again in three to six months but it has been six months and I don't think I am going to need it again. The toeing in was definitely from the flare and I have cooled/healed sufficiently that I don't think I am going to need it again. I would do it again if I needed it.
I am on copaxone, baclofen as needed and klonpin as needed. Both of the later drugs are for treating spasticity which is not an everyday occurance for me. I take a some supplements too (vit. D, coq10, niacin, DMG, magnesium).
Your toothache pain in your leg really sounds like the osteo arthritis. I would ask your doctor. I have never had that sort of pain.
love and prayers,
