Hello there. Welcome to Mayo Connect! Sorry to hear that you have such an unpleasant condition. If you could perhaps elaborate on your condition a bit, such as when/how this started and what caused it (if you have any idea), whether the doctor had any sort of diagnosis for you, and how long and how often an attack lasts and how severe they are usually? Did you take anything else prior to the baclofen? A few more details would be super helpful. Hoping you find something to bring relief that works better w.o. the sleepiness. Hope others here can help to give you some good feedback on this issue as well. Best to you, Hank

Hank & Amanda, In 2014 was Dx: Bilateral Mortons Neuroma in both feet, did all conservative treatments (alchol injections, B12 injections, custom foot orthodics), In 2018 had surgery on left foot for Mortons Neuroma- (Surgical removal of the nerve), a year later, started having pins & needle pain in both fett, harder to walk, went to Neurologist to do conduction test, results: normal, Dx: small fiber peripheral neuropathy, started on Lyrica, 6 months later started to notice muscle weakness, numbness, tingling in both legs, sometimes feel heaviness in legs, weakness in both arms, when walking in motion don't feel grounded, feel like I'm in space, skin changes with itchiness, feel stiffness in feet & calves that is painful, went back to see neurologist said common symptom of PN, muscle cramping, muscle spasms, muscle contractions, sometimes Lyrica can help the stiffness, ordered Physical Therapy & scheduled another nerve study in November, also going to Emory Pain Clinic, Rx: Baclofen 5 mg ( muscle relaxer), took 1/2 pill and got very sleepy, most of my foot & calve pain comes from muscle tightness, do you know of any other remedies for muscle tightness?- Thank you 😊
