I'm not on anything for my MS except the Copaxone which I really want to stop soon. I stopped all the stuff they gave me to go along with the MS issues ( Provigil, Baclofen, Neurontin...) I just hated them.
My new doc wanted me to try a small dose at night of Zanaflex. He gave me the Rx for it, I have yet to fill it because I really wanted to get others thoughts on this. I was given this one time to try as a sample but according to my new neuro, my old neuro gave me way to high a dose and that's why I got so sick on it and could not even function.
Anyone use Zanaflex and what is your experience with it?
For the first time in I can't remember when....I had to stay out of work today. I was in horrible pain and had to cave in and take the emergency pain meds they gave me ( Lortab). I only took 1/2 the dose and it helped the pain and I slept all day but I try to do without all that....but I've used that maybe 3 times since Feb for pain that is beyond what I can handle like today.
He feels taking a small dose of Zanaflex at night would help me get up in the morning in less pain. I have to do something to get this pain under control. An MS Nurse asked me if I have been tested for anything else to see if maybe something else is going on to make the MS worse....but like what? I mean this whole thing is just getting to me. Pity Party moment: Can I have my life back before this monster MS please!!!!!
My pain was bad today and the cramps were like if I tried to strech I was getting charlies horses in every muscle I have in me...
Mostly my legs...and I had a ton of tingling in the right side...arm
Jimmylegs: I picked up the magnesium. Started it yesterday
Thanks to all.
