Do any of you guys on here have a baclofen pump? I am a C-4 incomplete quadriplegic and have CRAZY body spasms all the time. I take 80mg of baclofen everyday orally and it hardly helps. I use THC and CBD to help calm my spasms but don't want to have to only rely on those. Some days are easier than others but makes it really difficult living in my own body. I have to sleep with tie downs over my legs every night because my legs constantly kick up throughout the night. I am a little nervous and hesitant about getting one. I can manage my spasms but I am going to be driving soon and worry about having a bad spasm while I am driving. I know my spasms have kept my body from atrophying and I use them to help me with certain things. I am scared that the pump will take everything away and I will be worse off. I need help getting convinced. What are the pros and cons?
