Spasticity update and sleep improvement

Spasticity update and sleep improvement

First I need to give an update on my Bionic Gym and spasticity experiment. In a quick summary I was paying close attention to how my spasticity was after I used my Gym. My blogs during the week discussed it a little further. https://multipleexperiences.org/2021/11/15/bionic-gym-helping-with-spasticity-my-experiment/ and https://multipleexperiences.org/2021/11/17/time-for-a-hair-color-change/. Please remember this is MY experience with Bionic Gym. https://bionicgym.com/?rfsn=6087517.2f5823 The company makes no claims to help with neurological issues. That being said, 100% it made a difference and that’s exactly what I was…

Bionic Gym helping with Spasticity, my experiment

Bionic Gym helping with Spasticity, my experiment

I am doing a test this week. I think the Bionic Gym is helping with the spasticity. I have been using it later in the day on Monday and Wednesday because of occupational therapy. I am going to adjust the timing of that. I started with Sunday. I normally don’t do any exercise. It is my one day off. It is also the most difficult day for me with spasticity. I figured I would just do one hour at a…

A tired rant

A tired rant

My daughter came home. Her health insurance is still in NY and she needed to see the “female” doctor. She decided to come home Wednesday evening because she was able to get an appointment for Thursday. Otherwise she would have had to wait until some time in December. She has to go for a sonogram before she leaves Friday morning. I am just happy I got an extra day to see her that was unexpected. I just love her face….

Put on a happy face

Put on a happy face

Daylights savings was Sunday morning at 2am. I am waiting for this to finally end. I know that there has been legislation within the courts. I also know that each state within each time zone has to approve it to finally do away with it. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.usatoday.com/amp/6233980001. This weekend we gained the hour. I was up at my normal time. The clock might have said 7:30 but my body knows it is really 8:30. So do my dogs. Now it will…

Mid week check-in

Mid week check-in

So far it’s been an interesting week. I finally called my doctor about the spasticity. https://multipleexperiences.org/2021/10/29/spasticity/. However if you check out the blog post’s comments you’ll find a really good suggestion from Tom. Even though I take 10mg of Baclofen daily, I personally never felt like it was a big help for spasticity. I take it daily to keep it in my system. When I do have spells of spasticity, I have the prescription to take up to 3-10mg tablets…

Spasticity

Spasticity

Good morning. Hopefully it actually is good. It is finally fall weather outside. A lovely crisp 54 degrees. I still have a window open next to me. I am sure my aide thinks I’m insane. I love the chilly air especially when I workout. Eventually I shut them. I’m surprised with this cooler air my spasticity is still really bad in my legs. It can be very difficult to get my leg to bend. It affects my right leg more…

My week finding agencies

My week finding agencies

Well after my blog on Wednesday, I figured I better lighten things up a little. I just don’t know if I have anything light to talk about. It’s not that anything is necessarily bad but it isn’t that great either. I had terrible spasticity this week. My legs have been super stiff. It has made getting up out of my chair and bed difficult. It is very difficult to move when one or both of your legs don’t want to…

My review of the massage gun

My review of the massage gun

I have to talk about my purchase of the massage gun. A massage gun for spasticity. I wanted one for some time but kept putting it off. They weren’t cheap. I kept thinking is they’d be like those massagers you got at drugstore that you used for a week and never used it again. These are NOT the ones sold at the drugstore. I learned that really fast. First thing these are super powerful. I have not had the power…

A massage gun for spasticity

A massage gun for spasticity

Yesterday I purchased one of those massage guns. I’ve been looking at them for a while because sometimes I’m in such pain from spasticity. Last night was one of those nights where out of nowhere my whole back a neck tightened. I always describe this like someone took a fork and twisted it like they were trying to get spaghetti twirled around. Except it’s not spaghetti it’s my tendons. The area just becomes so tight so fast. It starts at…

I’m too tired for Monday

I’m too tired for Monday

I’m not sleeping well which is unusual for me. Sleeping has never been my problem. I can sleep all day and night normally other than getting up for bathroom breaks. Once in a while I deal with spasticity issues that plague my sleep. That can last for a night to a week to a month but that is sporadic and the medications I take at night normally do a good job preventing those episodes. I take baclofen, neurontin and flexeril…
