Thursday noon, with approval from the doctor, I started re-taking the Horizant. Horizant is a drug which diminishes nerve pain. It did break the cycle. However, after 3 days of taking it, I’m not so sure I’m going to continue it.
As the neurological pain subsides, I can do more. My muscles are now on fire. They have all increased in their spasticity since I’ve started taking the med. I’m not relaxing the muscles like I should, because of the decreased pain, and my own excitement at being able to do things.
I’m likely to continue taking the med, but I need to focus on relaxation measures to my muscles, otherwise, I fear that I will find myself in the same predicament as before.
