Joppette Posted May 28, 2010 Share Posted May 28, 2010 So I saw the Rheumatoid doctor yesterday. Good news again: no arthritis, no connective tissue disease, no auto immune disease. and no answers on these spasms. *sigh* Next doctor in line is a neurologist. Waiting for the phone call to schedule that. The Rheumatoid doctor really felt that the neurologist will be able to get to the bottom of this. I just don't know. Have seen so many doctors now. He did take me off the Klonopin, and asked me to try Xanax instead. He said Xanax has more muscle relaxant properties. He wants me to take 1 mg 3 times a day, which seems like a lot. I took .5 mg this morning, and will try that dose first, as I really don't want to feel like a zombie on this medication. If it helps, I will be very excited! So onward and upward....still working hard on keeping a positive attitude because I know getting depressed about this is not going to help. So I am POSITIVE that the neurologist will get to the bottom of it. Yeppers!!!! Hope you all have a nice 3 day weekend! Judy in MI Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
