Discussions that mention valium

Back Problems board

Monkey, I still try to figure out exactly what the heck is happening when the mucsles spasm. I know it hurts like heck, the area can get hard, the last docs appointment he could barely get the needle in an area & he said because the muscle there were in spasm. I will throb like crazy. I do know my pt said moist heat is better on some areas & ice on others. Certain parts of the neck he stated you should not use ice on. Ice works wonders on my shoulder, I use moist heat on my neck. I know when the pain is really bad I am in muscle spasm & I grab the moist heat & ice packs both, I have yet to find a mucsle relaxer that works for me, but a small dose of valium helps & that is used also to relax the muscles. Good luck, Sammy
