Has anyone ever been hospitalized for severe lower back spasms besides me? I just spent the last six days in the most amount of pain in my life, and believe me, pain isn't new to me. I did the MRI, CT scan, x-rays, steroid injections, etc. but the only thing that slightly helped was an insane amount of narcotics especially morphine. These all made me very ill however. To complicate matters, I have Crohn's disease and take Remicade which generically lists back pain as possible side effect. My chiropractor tells me spasms can be caused by calcium or potassium deficiencies. Has anyone heard of Remicade being a blocker or causing over-absorption of potassium/calcium? The dr.'s found nothing wrong with my back bt I never want to have that again but I have zero explanation about causes. Anyone?
