Re: Has this ever happened to you?
I am in between Dr.s right now, so I am just taking anti inflamatories, muscle relaxers and pain meds. In the past I did the pt, blocks, epidurals, pretty much everything cept surgery.
I do get back spasm's fairly often usually once a month, generally they are brought on by sitting for an extended period of time, or standing for too long. Those spasms tend to last several days even with use of flexoril. The weirdest thing about the swelling is that it usually occurs when I am not having any spasms, but just having local disc pain. The swelling can be so pronounced that its sometimes visible.
The event where my laughter caused that sharp sudden pain was an isolated incident. I just didnt know if it was indicative of a change to or around my disc or just some weird coincidence.
