Re: constant back spasms
Hi Wendy, welcome!! I'm not a dr, but I'd say it's NOT normal to have over-active muscle spasms!! I've been told that I have that too, but I've also been in a car accident and have herniated discs too, and no dr has ever told me it was normal!!
I would insist that the drs run a CT or MRI scan on your hubby's spine!! I'd bet money that he's got a herniated or bulging disc somewhere that's causing these muscles to spasm so much!!
I just hate drs that think their guesses are the answer!! An MRI is the best at telling you exactly what's causing the pain!
I'd also say that continuing his work the way he has, will make things worse!!
It's been 7yrs for me, and my drs have told me not to return to any type of physical job!! There's to be no lifting, pushing or pulling, and surgery's not an option for me! Yet, your hubby's suppose to continue his normal routine?? Doesn't make sense to me?? Though this is only my 2 cents, like I said, I'm no dr! But, I'm sure others here would agree! Take care, I wish you both the best!!
