stiffness and numbness

I have had extreme stiffness and numbness on the entire left side of my body since November, I had the IV steroid treatments and my walking is somewhat better but the other symtoms are still not good, I am on Zanaflex and baclophen, but I am still not even close to being better, I can't remember how long the steroids take to work, but I am getting really frustrated with this, any other options I have to speed up recovery??

I had numbness this past year. It was followed by pain that no meds could relieve, that it until I was put on Gabapentin the generic for Neurotin. I don't have numbness anymore or pain. I don't know if this med would help you, but you can always ask your Dr.
Good Luck1

It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
