continued back pain

txsunsets - September 30

I am having major problems with my back. It hurts all the time and i am also having muscle spasms going down my butt and legs which are very painful. I have had my back checked out and nothing is wrong with it so i know it is my FMS. I am taking Nuerontin for my FMS, Flexeril for my muscle spasms and putting cream the Fantod told me about and nothing seems to help. Does anyone have any more suggestions???

Yes - This is a doozy of a suggestion. I've had it done and I did not enjoy it one bit. You could have your doctor inject the areas that you keep having the muscles spasms (trigger points). Mine uses Sarapin which is a derivative of the pitcher plant. It is non toxic unlike cortisone which can cause tissue damage. Sarapin is a pain killer which can be used more often that cortisone. Sometimes you need to break the pain cycle in a specific area. This will do it but the after effects for me from the injections were pretty bad. Once I got over that, it really helped and I felt a lot better for almost six months. Give the cream I recommended some more time to work. Be sure to apply it to clean, warm skin and use a layer of saran wrap so it will really absorb, The saran wrap has to be removed after two hours. I'm sorry you are so uncomfortable. Take care.

What would i do without you Fantod. You don't know how much i appreciate your suggestions. I will continue to use the cream. My doctor is out of town until mon so if i am still having problems then i will go see her. Thanks again

If you decide to have any injections done be sure to take an ice pack with you for the trip home. Better yet, have someone else do the driving. I was extremely sore afterwards so if you could schedule something for Friday afternoon, all the better. I still think you should see a pain specialist for an evaluation. I really hope that something gives you some relief soon. I've been there and I know how miserable you must feel right now. I rooting for you, so hang in there. Take care.

Fantod, thank you. i have another question. does your body ever just shut down on you. last night i was exhausted when i got home from work at one. i laid down and asked my mom to wake me up at 7 because i had a paper i had to write. when she tried to wake me i wouldn't wake up. they tried until 11:30 and had no luck. when they tried to wake me this morning it took them almost an hour to wake up. i took my nuerontin in the morning and that is all i took the whole day. i didn't even take my med last night because i was asleep. that never happens to me. should i be concerned??
