I knew the medication was working the first day. My hip joint was able to move up a bit after I had dragged my leg for two years. I am able to walk quite a bit faster and others have noticed.

Since I began taking this medication( 3rd week) I have tingling in my hands and feet (did not have prior to use) My balance improves some. I'm wondering if the strength is too strong?
