botox for ra or ankylosing muscle stiffness


I am new to the forum.
I am suffering from RA or Ankylosing Spond(Doctor is not sure and said only time will tell). I am taking 5-6mg Prednisolone, Vioxx but it is not helping enough. Though that vioxx is quite useless.

Wondered if anyone out there have used botox to relax the very stiff and hard muscle on your upper back and shoulder?
I get very stiff shoulder muscle that almost always ends up in spasm and bad headache that flatten me out on bed

I read that Botox can relax muscle..wonder if it will least stop the spasm
that give bad headache.
There's nothing on the net..just something I thought of.
