Hello again,
We got to go to the shore over the weekend and had a great time. At this point I have stopped taking pain meds for pain, I do have to take soma one or two times a day for muscle spasms, just depends on how active I am. My NS has me using endocet for my RLS as needed, sometimes my requip just doesn't get the job done. I made a appointment with another Doctor about that, we were looking at Zanaflex before my last surgery for my RLS. My balance seems better when I am walking, but when I get tired I have some problems. The numbness in my left arm/hand is different than it was, just burned a finger tip since I didn't feel the heat right away, kinda scarry. It looks like my CES like symptoms have gone away, hard to believe that cevical spine issues were causing that, but then again with myelopathy who knows. Next NS appointment is May 12, hope everyone keeps healing and getting better!



  • That's great news! I hope that you continue to have improvement!

  • Thanks for posting your update. I've been wondering about ya. I'm glad you're improving - keep it up! And continue to keep us posted.

  • I hope you take care. It's a good reminder for all who have numbness to be careful of burns. I'm glad to hear the CES symptoms have gone away. Take care and hope you continue to get better everyday. Charry
