    LOL, Skippy! I was just thinking that I feel like a big piece of tough meat jerky!

    I wonder why spasticity is so bad at night. You'd think sleep would make it better, but nooooo....

      My spasms have gotten a TON worse since I got hurt back in '04.
      I was on a ton of baclofen that did not help at all and am currently maxed out on zanaflex capsules which worked for a while but now do nothing for me.
      Is there anything else I can try?

        There are a couple other drugs (that aren't first choice) that work well for some. See your Dr. Good Luck!
