Hi Ginny, I take Soma and yet I still get muscle spasms. I get them in my back sometimes when I bend over. It feels like a 'V' moving up my back from hip to shoulder blades. While it is hitting, it takes my breath away. I try to grab on to something to keep from falling. It feels like it affects everything, balance, breathing, ability to move. It probably lasts about 20 seconds total, but it feels like forever when it hits. I have had these spasms hit for over 40 yrs, I had a fall off of balance beam in HS. I hit just the right spot on my back, and I have paid for it since. I have hit the ground when I haven't had something to grab on to.
I'm sorry you are having such a problem w/ this. Have you spoken w/ your dr. perhaps he can try Soma or something else w/ you. I wish you good luck w/ this. God bless. Alice.
