Update

Hi there! Just wanted to thank you guys & gals for reading my story and responding so quickly. I was so thankful that I have some new friends! So here is my update...swelling is going down with a stronger water pill. Still working on getting a new neurologist and seeing if my insurance will pay for UVA. Was told not to take the seizure medication because he said I was on Gabapentin already for the muscle spasms so he felt fairly confident in telling me that I was not having seizures. As far as Baclofen the 20 mg dose did not work as I had so bad of a day on Tuesday with tremors and balance. I tried to read & study but just shook too much and fell asleep a lot. I'm now off of the Baclofen without bad tremors. My doctor told me we will get this figured out! I hope you all enjoy your weekend! I'm flying to Florida on Monday so my only hope is we miss the bad snowstorms!

Take care!!

KATC1972 , it sounds as though you have found a doctor who will listen and knows how best to treat you. Glad the tremors and balance are reducing and your swelling. Have a good flight to Florida. Where are the expected snow storms? Surely not Florida? Blessings Jimeka

We have quite a big storm covering most of the Northeastern states and some of the northern central states.. Am I being bad, we've been in the high 70's and expect and 80 degree day on Tuesday.. Hopefully, my feel will stop feeling like they are freezing.

Thanks for your help! My allergy doctor gave me Prednisone and I'm wondering if that is not why I am feeling better!

Take care!

Hi! Where do you live in Florida? We are flying into Sanford/Orlando and getting a rental car to drive to Kissimmee(probably spelled wrong). where my uncle & aunt live. I'm excited but my brother hasn't been on a plane since 1976. This should be interesting! Thanks for everything!
