Hey, we have all felt that way before. Its a hard life living with CP and it takes alot of endurance to survive sometimes. But, I want to do just more than survive, I want to live and there is a difference between the two.
Personally, I would have gone ahead and took 2 of the Robaxin, because you may be headed for what I sometimes call the point of no return. It does sound like you have spasms going on and let me tell you they can cause pain from hell. I went thru nearly ten weeks of hell from spasms from a fall. I was allowed to take my Zanaflex every 2 hrs and my pain dr also gave me a script of Baclofen to take at bedtime. Now, keep in mind I have a pain pump implanted plus Dilaudid 2mg for BT pain. I did better with the muscle relaxers than I did the BT pain med.
I also hear alot of stress and anxiety in your voice. One thing I use to do is soak in a hot tub and just lay my head on a pillow and try to relax. That also helped me. Now, we just have a large walkin shower so I let the shower head work on my neck & back. I fell too many times getting in & out of the tub due to bad knees so it had to go. Another thing I will suggest is getting a portable spa for your tub. They are not that expensive and they do help.
I do applaud you for getting out of the house. Thats a must. Staying in the house 24/7 is no good. Go out and stand in the sun on your patio/porch every day. You need the vitamin D from the sun. I hope you get to feeling better, hugs, Susie
Have a wonderful pain free day, Anne.
