Last night I posted about my spasticity being bad; it got worse. My leg was so tight last night and what was concerning to me was the fact that I have not been in any kind of pain since I started Tysabri but last night I was thinking one thing; Norco (pain killers). I didn’t take any though, I really have no desire to go back to the narcotic game, so I took all the over the counter pain killers that I could and sat in the shower with the massage setting pointing at my leg with as warm of water as I could handle. Sure it left a settle pins and needles sensation on my leg but hey, it helped a bit.
Don’t ask me why, because I have no idea, but my spasticity really sucked today. My legs were so tight from the moment I woke up! At first I tried going for a walk to stretch my legs out a bit. It rained last night so it was really nice out (for me) so it was the perfect day for a walk. No sun, overcast, a calm breeze, a faint mist in the air, and the streets were damp. Along my walk I started feeling really “heavy” and I know I have said this before but I literally felt like I was carrying a 50 pound (22kg) weight. I felt like the ground beneath my feet should have been cracking. I pressed on an made it home at which point I noticed my left leg was starting to cramp up.
