Discussions that mention valium

Spinal Cord Disorders board


I would be concerned with taking Diazepam frequently- I believe that is the generic form of VALIUM, which as I understand it is a pretty addictive drug...

I'm not familiar with the other drug you mentioned...

Without THOROUGHLY reading all of your posts- I would consider

1. 2nd, 3rd, 4th opinions

2. possibly cervical traction. I had herniations at C5/6 and C6/7 and found relief for a little while with that. although depending on your condition, some dr's may recommend you stay away from this...

3. deep massage- I also found relief for awhile with deep massage in the shoulder and neck areas...

4. surgery may at this point be your best bet- a lot of people on this board have found relief with FUSION. I am one of the few who chose a NON FUSION procedure, check out the post NON FUSION OPTION for more info on it...

Everyone has different conditions and circumstances so I don't dare claim that non fusion is better than fusion for everyone. But it was the right choice for me...

good luck
