Hello all... I have very bad spasticity or rigidity (not sure for correct terminology) and my limbs are basically like a wooden limb. I have done botox shots in the past, but it does not relieve the spasticity.... helps a bit with the pain. 

Every day is getting rougher and rougher as far as mobility. Any help? Experience?

Have you tried Zanaflex or a pump into the spinal cord of the medication baclofen ? Baclofen is for when spasticity is severe.

Right now I'm at 70 mg of baclofen (7 pills) daily for my spasticity.

I have a Baclofen pump. I take oral Baclofen and zanaflex for upper extremidies and break through spasticity . Yoga in chair and stretching.

A general muscle relaxer may work if the spasticity is not too severe, but since you say it is bad try Baclofen as the above members have recommended. I am surprised your doctor has not recommended that.

@Hidden username‍, on another note, how is the pump working compared to orally?
