I have Scolios in the upper part of my back C3, C4 and I swear it's going up to C2.
Can anyone tell me why sometimes my muscles pull soooo hard and my head tilts to the left. Sometimes it's not so bad.
BUT I'm always in intractible pain. ALWAYS. Would Baclofin help? Would Zanaflex help. HELP!

Pam I take 10mg of Zanaflex for muscle spasms and it works very well for me. I had a bad fall 10 weeks ago, my pain dr added Baclofen at bedtime to help me rest better because of the spasms. However, because of the fall we had to change up how I took the Zanaflex and then a couple of weeks later I had trigger point injections done in my back. He used Toradol and Marcaine. I cannot tolerate steroids this is why Toradol was used. I am doing sooo much better now. I have backed off taking the Zanaflex and Baclofen now, only use as needed. Susie

Susie:
I swear I don't know the meaning of "spasm" When your doctor prescribed Baclofen, what did the spasms feel like?

It's not a good idea, of course, but I kinda try tiny bits of different medications to see if I can get it right. The doctors sure can't. I don't advise this method to anyone else, of course.

Pam for me muscles spasms cause terrible pain. The area will be tender and hard & like its knotted up. This what happens with me, people are different you know. Now, listen, taking a tiny bit of a med is worthless, not taken as prescribed will not do the job its intended to do. Well, Baclofen is used alot for people with MS, they have spasticity problems, stiffness and of course pain. I can only tell you this, I went in for a pump refill right after my fall. When the tech tried helping me from the table I screamed because the pain was that severe. It took 3 people to lift me from the table since I could not bend enough to get up. I actually threw up I was in so much pain. I thought my back was broke. While laying on that table I was hit with severe spasms from hell. I have a very high pain tolerance and I am not wimp, but I was that day. Susie

Susie --
I think my pain comes from Scoliosis. My back or neck will bend due to a "spasm" and it hurts right at the point of the bend. Then nerves will be disturbed and other places on my back will hurt.
I can tell you this: I've NEVER had a spasm like you had on the table. You described it very well.

You should really look into having your dr prescribe a muscle spasm meds. It sure may help you. Susie
