Maybe not friends, but we know each other well. 🙁

A few weeks ago I started experiencing some slight tension in my right calf. I wrote it off for a while, but it progressed to decent pain when I was walking. This was a first, and then I had no choice but to slap the label of spasticity on the issue. I tried Motrin to see if it would help with the pain when walking, but no effect. Fortunately, the tenseness not stick around much longer and is gone now.

While I was having the spasticity problem, and persisting now, is a small balance problem. I have not fallen, but I am glad for nearby support. I am especially thankful for the handrail next to the stairs. This is improving but still lingering.

Apparently, when my “old friends” came over they invited someone new. This was especially disappointing on a few levels. Who wants any of these types of “friends?” I have gone quite a while without any issues and even longer without any new issues. Very disappointing.

The new issue is a gait problem. Difficult for me to describe. I will see if I can get a video and post that for a follow-up.
