[QUOTE=Vipermmx]I had an x-ray at a chiro before and he mentioned my neck bone was straight as an arrow and its caused by the tension back there. He thought it was because my traps are very weak. Ive never had 1 single doctor x-ray my spinal(dont know why they havent).
My neck headaches start if keep my neck in one place for to long. My back spasms feel as though I got 2 HUGE spikes shoved into my shoulder blades and my mucles are being twisted onto the rotating spikes.
It seems to start in the middle but the pain becomes amazing around the shoulder blades when its in feel spasm. I cant breath as you very well and if I laydown or sit its pure chest pain.
uggh. its like a lost cause
I tried skepilexin(sp?) it worked but after 2 months its effect went away(got an immunity to it)[/QUOTE]
What kind of doctors are you going to for back problems that don't do any kind of x-rays? Are you talking GP? I cannot imagine any ortho or neuro spine specialist not doing x-rays right there in their office during a comprehensive exam. If it is only muscle involvement it's possible that some injections might reduce the inflammation and spasms.
See that you go to Chiro, so what are they doing for the spasms? As I've never been to a chiro, can you tell me why you chose a chiro versus a neuro or ortho doc for your back?
Hope you find relief from the spasms soon.
