I am still here just not posting much. The Valium knocks me for a loop. Family is afraid I will get addicted to it because it does take away the spasms it also makes me sleep a lot. My 2grandsons are ere for the summer. I try to be active but I notice i am sharper no patievce but even then they say sort hurts so much, who could resist a hug from that, I need another hour sleep buy thought I should pop in for a minute.
Take care

If you are still having spasms you shouldn't be 'trying to be more active', you should be resting. As long as you are still aggravating it, the spasms won't stop.

Hi Rose, good to hear from you but sorry you are still suffering. Like Michael said, could you lower your dose of valium or even try another muscle relaxant that might night make you so drowsy? have you tried Flexeril or Baclofen.

Glad you were able to pop in for a post. Take care

I am taking flexerel, out of Valium. The spasms are returning and I am to start physio too. I called around and the cost is more than we can afford. I am not. Rushing the physio because I know when I have overdone things I hurt for weeks. Thanks for all the concern.
Take care

          I hope you can get it all figured out Rose, and maybe the Dr will script something else that does not cost so much. I agree that if you do too much and inflame those areas...it does seem to take a very long time to get it to calm down. Maybe some light stretching, just to keep things limbered up a bit will help.

   Take care, and I sincerely hope you get to feeling better soon! We have missed you here on the forum, but many of us know that you have to take care of yourself first....so do that please, and visit when you can. We dont want you adding more stress to a already troubling situation for yourself.
