Hey Linda,

I don't have a lot of experience here.  I just wanted to show you some support.  Have you called your doc about adjusting that baclofen?  You seem to be on a pretty low dose.  Try to keep that MS leg warm and stretched.  Take good good care. 

I hope you are feeling better real soon.  Are you still doing all your volunteer work?  How is that going?

I usually have cramping in my legs at night after I go to bed. Not sure if it is weather related or not because I have just noticed it lately within the lasr 2 months or so. It could be because of the cold weather we have here in Idaho but I will have to wait until spring and summer to answer that. I do know that the weather we have here is cold, but it is not like the wet, cold that I was used to in the Chicago area because we don't have the humdity. I, too, am on 10 mg of baclofen and since I started taking 3 pills a day my leg cramps have gotten less. Good luck to you. Hope you find a good answer. I will be checking this page to see if anyone can help.
Take care and hope to see you on the MS Chat forum on Mondays.
