2017 November 12th, Horizant reaction

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.
