sodium and potassium need to be balanced. do you have a high sodium low potassium diet to go with your particular brand of spasticity lew?
(and man, i know what spasticity feels like i use it for a mag-k monitor pretty much!)
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!

I'm pretty sure it's not the old injuries, but I'm not totally sure. It's the other leg. All my surgeries have been on my right knee and they were very successful. Most of this pain is on my left side, but it's present on the right, just not as much. My neuro. thinks all of that comes from my spinal lesions since it is somewhat bilateral, but who knows. My hip is starting to hurt now also, but I think that could be due to favoring my knee so much. I sure hope so.
I don't know my levels, but I still take the mag at a 'regular' dose. I also eat a banana every day and eat lots of nuts and berries, so I think my K is OK, but I guess I could get it checked out.
