tired of it all

so the neuropathy in my feet makes me unstable – i walk with a cane
my legs suffer from cramps, severe at night
neurologist prescribes muscle relaxer (baclofen)
half-pill at night … increased to whole pill
pills worsen my apnea, do nothing for the cramps
so now the “specialist” wants to increase me to two pills twice a day
four-times the amount
any apnea issue is all in my head – the pills wouldn’t do that
(they ARE a muscle relaxer …)
so i have a choice
leg cramps
or stop breathing

lucky me

i’m through
i’m ready to go home and chuck all the meds
and take whatever comes

screw it

  1. My neurologist prescribed 10mg Baclofen at noon and bedtime, when the spasticity in my legs took off like a freight train. Don’t know if it affects my apnea, because my other meds totally knock me out for the night. It does help with the spasticity though. I was having trouble going to sleep because my legs, shoulders, feet, arms would not stop jerking.
