Looking for new ideas about spasticity

My husband has rather bad spastisty in the legs and probably bladder...has issues there anyhow. He does not want to take the Baclofen, because he can't afford to be any weaker or more tired at he just doesn't like the idea of taking separate pills for everything and having to worry about what's a symptom, what's a side-effect, and what he needs to avoid when taking them...
He is also not interested in ...

Mix and match Glucosamine

I now have a stock pile of n-acetyl and a 250 pill bottle glucosamine chondroitin (triple strength 750/600).

I haven't taken the n-acetyl for two days because I'm going to try the off-on method.

This morning I tried a triple strengh chondroitin on a mostly empty stomach and at first I had, what felt like, serious side effects. My entire body was vibrating and every time I started to fall back to sleep I would ...

Neuro tomorrow - any advice?

I am seeing a neuro tomorrow for a first appt. I had a v negative experience with one in sept who basically dismissed me cos I was moving towns only a week or so after the appt and he couldn't be bothered.

Since then symptoms have gotten worse and I now have another initial consult in my new town. This time (unlike last) I have written down my symptoms so I don't get flustered.

Is ...

Thoughts on Placebo effect

Hi, I have been wondering the last week or so regarding the placebo effect. There is lots of material where they talk of the 30% or so of unwarranted improvement people get on sham treatments (ie the placebo arm of studies).

What I have yet to read is about people on the actual treatment who *lose* 30% effectiveness due to the same effect? ie The placebo effect working in reverse. Logically, I would expect it ...

Avonex while sick?

I know that we have discussed the issue of taking Avonex while being sick in the past. At that time, I had only one prior experience in this area and that was that I had Avonex within roughly 24 hours of feeling a cold start to come on and the Avonex seemed to help such that I did not feel any of my cold symptoms the next day. However, I have recently had a very ...

Any fellow cyclobenzapriniacs?

The baclofen by itself, even at 20 milligrams, 3 times a day, did not fully help my abdominal hug.

A couple months ago, the cyclobenzaprine was added to the mix. I have to admit, it helps quite a bit with the abdominal spasm, but woooo boy does that stuff make you tired.

It's a good thing I no longer drive or work. I wouldn't be able to cope, taking this medicine. Not to mention I ...
