Amantadin and Tizanidine (Zanaflex)

Photobucket

So I started these two new medications and boy do they suck. The Zanaflex (For spasticity) came in 2mg pills. Took it the first day and… nothing. Took it the next morning, waited an hour and… my legs were still stiff. So I did some research and upped my does to 6mg and guess what? It helps! But it still makes me sooooooo tired, almost not worth it, all I did yesterday is sleep. Sometimes it is hard to keep my eyes open! Oh and it is giving me really bad Cotton Mouth!

I Could NOT Sleep, Major Insomnia?

Photobucket

Well actually, I don’t know that it was actually insomnia because I fell asleep a few times but could not STAY asleep. I partially could not stay asleep just because I was having a hard time sleeping and partially because I was in pain and was trying to not use the last of my 3 Norcos. I settled for half of one,,, It did not help, should have just used a full pill.

Video Update: Hospital, MRI, Spasticity, Botox, Change?

Vestibular Exercise for Vertigo/Dizziness

I just wanted to share an exercise I do for vertigo or dizziness. It seems to help but you have to do it quite often.You are supposed to do this for 30 seconds per eye, 5 times a day. Everyone is different but this is what I am doing. Hope it helps!
