Can you provide more information about your symptoms? For example, were you unable to walk because of muscle cramps or because of weakness?
By the way, what do you take to help counter the side effects?
Basically I have absolutely no strength in my legs,if I stand I go right down,I can crawl but its very difficult because I have bad knees,my balance is gone too,and the headache that I always get with my shot is unreal.
I take the following meds:Tramodol,Cylobenzaprine,Busiprone,Oxybutin.
I have never had any of the flu-like symptoms everyone talks about,my main side effect is body wide stretching that feels great,that I have always had from day one.
