Discussions that mention diazepam

Back Problems board


I went to my doctor, and have been seeing a PT every week now, and the muscle spasms have decreased, not stopped. the only thing that helps is hydrocodone, and I have 3 left, and my doctor refuses to refill them again, because he worries I will develop an addiction. I am also on diazepam (muscle relaxers) but I am almost out of those as well. the muscle spasms seem to be spreading, as they are now in both legs and right above my left shoulder blade. I have found that the best way to help the worst of them is to lie on them, but unfortunately, most of the time, that means laying on the spot where they took a rib out for bone graft, which is still very tender. is there a certain position I could sleep at night? because this is when the muscle spasms are worst, when I am laying down trying to sleep. thanks in advance,
