Spacticity and Pregnancy related query

Hi, I am 4 months pregnant and I have some moderate/severe stiffness and spasms in my legs, my MS nurse advised they would normally prescribe Baclofen for this but as I have not taken this before they wouldn’t recommend starting it now because I’m pregnant, has anyone started Baclofen once pregnant or does anyone have any other herbal/homeopathic remedies for the spasms as I am finding walking quite difficult and need some help.

Thanks

I find magnesium works pretty well.

Hmmm. Cramp is quite a common problem in pregnancy anyway (so I’m led to believe), so might be a contributory factor. Wonder if it’s worth querying with your GP whether there’s anything they would give to a pregnant woman who didn’t have MS?
