I was with my neurologist the other day and he has recommended that I try the baclofen pump for the spasticity in my right leg. I said I thought it was for people in wheel chairs/bedridden etc. He said no and they have recently put one in a lady with a spinal cord injury who had mild spasticity and it has worked much better than the tablets and that her walking has improved a lot.
I dont have an MS dx although my problems mimic PPMS a bit. My neuro thinks that my problem is due to the fact I had radiation treatment for cancer 24 years ago it has caused my spinal cord to age prematurely. Physios reckon my problem is 90% spasticity and 10% weakness in that leg and that the spasticity .is causing the problem.
I have agreed to go for the trial in which they inject baclofen into you via a lumbar puncture. They measure your response and then decide whether you would benefit from having the pump.
I have tried all the drugs orally (baclofen, Tizanidine gabapentine, fampridine etc)
