Re: Spasms from he**

Hi woods, I have the same spasm going from base of skull to under shoulderblade. The first day i couldnt wait for husb to get home to rub it out. When he walked in first words were i have this spasm & i cant turn my head!!Lol So, a few days later & its still there but worse no matter the fix i tried. Son coming over, hooray! He can rub it for me & he walks in & had just left dr he popped tendon off ring finger playing catch with water soaked football in pool. Now thinking of getting massage. Laid down in hot bath shallow so i could keep back of head on bottom of tub & breathe, very impo! Presto! Its getting better each time. Interested in what the dr tells you manana. God bless you!

Re: Spasms from he**

Gmak, I for you and with you .misery loves company eh. My pain has now traveled up into my head and up behind my ear.
Well it appears i have somehow managed to pinch a couple nerves in my neck. I'm to wear a neck brace for about 4 hours a day minimum, no raising my arm above the shoulder and no Stress on that arm. Which means no carving , can you hear me
sobbing?
Also have a UTI ,return in 1 week.

Re: Spasms from he**

Woods, I have fibro as well and have a lot of neck and top of shoulder think its called traps sometimes they hurt so bad. I have a tube sock I fill with long cooking rice and tie it at the end don't fill too full you want it to lay around your neck. Then I stick in microwave it stays warm a long time. I use ice too. A physical therapist told me to alternate.

I have these patches lidoderm prescription only. I cut them long ways and stick half on one side and half on other.

Also there's this cream voltaren gel prescription only it celebrex in a tube its wonderful!

Do you have a pain mgt dr? If not I'd try to find an interventional pain specialist. I love mine.

I wouldn't see a chiro until I had an mri to elinate any possible disc problems in the neck.

Hope this helps, oh yeah, I bought a soft neck brace for when its bad just to give it a break. Cathy

Re: Spasms from he**

Hi woods, Did the dr give you muscle relaxers? For some weird reason parafon forte works on my neck spasms but not on my back! Are you any better today?

Re: Spasms from he**

Gmak, I have one of Those rice tubes and use it occasionally. I don't have a PM Dr and have mostly been able to deal with all the aches and pains . I saw a GP this dr visit and he wasn't interested in changing up or even prescribing a different relaxer than my flexeral. That was from my rheumy , if i want to change it have to see him.
I'm getting the feeling not much would have touched those spasms unless it was caught at the onset.
Today is actually just a little better and I'm being a good girl and wearing the collar for already 4 hrs.
No chiro for me,I have other spinal issues and my ortho said no to chiro and he isn't anti chiro.

Re: Spasms from he**

Hi woods, No, no chiro for me ever either too many back surgeries & problems! Have you tried ice! I like hot water, heating pads but once had very severe spasm when out of town & my friend put ice pack on spasm until it went numb & ah i couldnt feel it! It actually relieved that spasm like the 3rd time i put ice on it! Of course, protected skin & left ice on only about 15 minutes, i was so surprised, shocked really. I hope it gets better day by day!

Re: Spasms from he**

Oh yeah, ice is better for spasms than heat, who'd of thought. I use ice on my spine right near the bra line to numb the nerve when my costchondritis flares up.

Today is about the same as yesterday. It started to spasm least night but caught it rightat the onset and the flexeril worked. That's the key is to catch em b4 they have a Vance to take hold. Never a dull moment in the fibro world

Re: Spasms from he**

Woods, Thats great that you were awake & caught it just in time! It must be going around! Both my sons, me , my husb, my friend in NJ, you! Its going away for all of us but none of above has fibro but supposedly me! I never believed it no matter the number of drs that diagnosed me because my back is sooo messed up how could anyone tell the tenderpoints. Then as time went on i got weird episodic aching, weakness, major fibro symptoms, etc unexplained by anything else. Btw, on the bottom, back of both calves, above ankles, it cannot be touched at all it is unbelievable painful, have you ever heard of this spot before? Just wondering, its been like this for years & havent known if fibro. I couldnt wear boots & i automatically prop pillows under knees or heels so "it" never touches even the couch or bed.

Re: Spasms from he**

I don't get anything just below my Calves like what you describe.
I get it all over, sharp sore spots that like to bounce around
Sometimes people without FM can get sore too, they just don't get it all the time like we do.
My neck/shoulder pain seems to have gotten stuck. still the same as a couple days ago. It's getting old already. Hope every one has a pain free labor day weekend

Re: Spasms from he**

Woods, I know you said your aches and pains are mostly under control. But if it (and I hope it doesn't) gets really bad plz consider that pm dr route. Just make sure its an inteventional pain mgt specialist where he can give you injections. Ive had them before and they REALLY have helped me. Don't be afraid of it. They can give you something like an ativan or something prior to take the edge off that's what my hubby has to do.

Hope everything works out for you cathy
