So for the last two years I have struggled with getting a good nights rest due to leg spasms. I have them because I am a paraplegic and something in my spine is telling my nerves something but my brain isn't getting the signal… so I get these sweet leg spasms that annoy me and make sleep impossible.
A few months ago I found the cure in a medication called Baclofen…. I found out today through research after I have stopped ovulating and have normal cycles that this pill is called a GABA which effects the secretion of LH hormones… DANGIT!!!!!
I of course started my period yesterday ( THANK YOU JESUS) after a 41 day anouvulatory cycle …I am slowing going off them in the next 5 days and am hoping my cycles get on track. I am going to go get my blood drawn here soon too and we are getting a SA … but now i feel like i went to the dr to complain about all this stuff and really this pill is causing all the issues. Baclofen isn't very popular so I doubt she would know any of the research on it.
Please pray that going off this pill will help me get back to normal
I can't be on it during a pregnancy but dealing with leg spas and for a year isn't a big deal when you have a baby . I guess it causes your pituitary gland to secrete prolactin too! So wish I knew this . I hope it doesn't take long to start oing !
wait, thats kind of amazing. it sucks that you might have leg spasms again, but you just found the simple explanation for your long cycles! im so happy that you figured it out, and i hope coming off that medication puts you back on track!
