Baclofen For Multiple Sclerosis Spasticity and Back Pain

Went down to Sinai hospital, had my meeting with the rehabilitation dude, don't know what type of doctor he was, but I liked him. We talked about the progression of the MS, the back surgery, and in my limbs. He came blowing in the room, back to us, thought to myself, this isn't going to end well, but it did. He did a thorough job, answered all of our questions, gave us something to do at least. I will be starting a low dose of Baclofen, increasing it until it's right for me, he thinks it will help everything. we will discuss long term pain medicine next time, not sure about that, fingers crossed the fen, that's what I call it now, will make a dent.

Baclofen messed me up big time! BUT my $%^&* neuro started me on the HIGHEST DOSE when everything I've read since says to start at low dose and increase as needed. That neuro really %^& me over big time. (Big time here!) It does help a lot of MSers with spasticity and other conditions as well. I'd cross something, but nothing will cross...

Kim - We shall see, 5 days so far, don't know what I think?

Muff - Thanks.

Diane - I'm on the lowest dose, see already how weak I am.
