Hello. Welcome to JA. Baclofen has a lot of side effects, variability in blood pressure being one. Do you have spasticity? You could consider a baclofen pump to give you tiny doses effectively into the thecal sac area (epidural catheter). Do you have a family history? What is your autoimmune status with blood work studies. Please get back to me with a reply to discuss this further. I will put out the phone option if you want to discuss this over the phone. JA charges extra but if interested put your number in the box and a time to call if not now. Dr Frank

I can send you information on autonomic neuropathy if you can send me more information. Did they call your anemia myelopthystic (?). Look at this webpage. Dr Frank.
