Welcome @bsnodgrass. I moved your question about treatments and medication that help stiff person syndrome to this existing discussion:

I did this so you can connect with others with SPS like @sheeva888 @krb65 @franksgirl210 @bjm5501 @southerncharm @terlato @rivermaya34 and more. Click the link to read all the posts.

@bsnodgrass, when were you diagnoses with SPS? What treatments have you tried?

Hi! I currently am taking Diazepam/Valium, Gabapentin, and get IVIg treatments every 5 weeks (3 days in a row each time). I also use medical marijuana. I do my own physical therapy, exercise and stretching. I also use heating pads on my neck/back and one leg. I find heated massage guns and trigger point massage tools to be helpful with my legs. Hot tubs, steam rooms, saunas and epsom salt sensory deprivation floats are helpful. I am also part of a bi-weekly support group call a friend found for me from one of the Facebook groups.
