Well the wet noodle experiment has succeeded in proving one thing at least. If you don’t tell your doctor and therapist that you stopped taking Baclofen, then you start taking 80 milligrams a day, side effects will happen. Every problem I’ve had since Monday is a Baclofen side effect. The wet noodle feeling isn’t because I’m taking too much, my muscles are still pretty tight. It’s drowsiness and weakness which are side effects.
The side effects will go away. It just takes a little time. And I’ve cut back to 50 to 60 milligrams, so that will help. And I’ve proven to myself the Baclofen works, I was definitely more flexible when doing stretches yesterday.
In other news, I have the brace for my right foot and the crutches and knee brace are on the way.
