I had a very rough Spring, into the Summer, with lots of stiffness, muscle cramps, and spasms. It was probably the worst since about
2004, when I was diagnosed with my neuro condition. I did see a neurologist recently, as I was concerned, and he decided to put me on a new muscle relaxer--Baclofen. I've been on it now for almost a month.
I had been taking Flexeril, especially at night, since it makes me sleepy. But this year, all it did was make me feel sort of headachy and it no longer did much for the stiffness.
Also, I take Robaxin during the day, which works well (thanks for the tip, Sherrine!).
Does anyone else take Baclofen? So far it's working well for me. the neurologist did some tests and comparisons with past records and has given me the all-clear. That's a load off my mind!!
So far, I'm feeling lots better--whew!
