    Are you looking to relax your muscles? Have you tried Magnesium?

    I believe you can make a paste or compress with Epsom Salt (magnesium sulfate) if you wanted to say treat a specific area ie calves? But just be careful with the magnesium stuff if you have any renal or cardiac problems etc., if you havent already checked with your md.

    I remember taking a Epsom Salt bath one time and did something really stupid and used way too much, well my muscles were almost like flaccid, systemic weak feeling and very sleepy.

    Can you bear weight on legs standing in parallel bars or walker? If you can that is the best medicine for decreasing tone. I have discontinued my meds(baclofen). Good luck
    Appreciate the small gains and the large ones will be ignored!!
