Tina,the kind of muscle spasms I am getting is lower back muscle spasms . I havent had them in a year. I have tried massaging the muscles and also have hubby helping me. Using icy hot,hot showers and also heating pad. Whitebeard I can sympathize with you I do get leg cramps from time to time they are the worst and sometimes they do wake me up at night . I just cant get rid of them so I think I visit to the dr is in order. I have been dealing with them over a week . I thought they were weather related but I guess not if its not going away , I also try to walk them off so I am not just being unactive eithier. I am on a pain med doesnt seem to help thats why I think its muscle spasms . My back feels so tight. Here in the us they dont sell any muscle meds otc for the back . all there is ibuprofren and I take that every day. I hope you have a lpd.
