Leg pain

Hi everyone,

Just recently I am suffering from severe stiffness on both of my legs especially when I walk. It gets so bad that I find myself

limping. Has anyone else experienced this? If so what have you don’t to overcome this. I am also slightly overweight, so it could be something to do with extra weight?

Any advise would be appreciated.

Hi Angelica

It sounds like increased ‘tone’, which is related to spasticity. Do you take Baclofen? And if you increase the dose slightly, does it help?

I doubt that it’s weight related, because it would have had to come on gradually as you gained weight, so you wouldn’t notice it changing.

But maybe someone else will have better ideas.
