Brief Answer:
Neurological disorders should be considered. Read below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your query and understand your concerns.

Baclofen is a drug used to ease muscles spasms and stiffness.

It is necessary first to achieve a correct diagnosis of your condition before starting treatment.

I don't know what was the diagnosis that your Doctor suspected after seeing you, in my opinion there is need for further examination that includes neurological examination and tests such MRI of brain and spinal cord to achieve the correct diagnosis.

Conditions such multiple sclerosis etc. should be considered, regarding to your symptoms.

Discuss with your primary care Doctor about prescription of a Neurologist consult and MRI of the brain and spinal cord.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
