    hydrocodine 7.50 nortriptyline and the dreaded drug effexor xr, probably not a bad idea to take another one i just hate taking all these meds..=(

    but theres got to be something better for theses terrible spasms

    Do you ever use a heating pad on where the pain is? It helps me a lot.

    And .... sometimes, I go the opposite direction: I use ice packs to numb the pain!

    Have you tried a chiropractor? I have a deep pain and very tender spot on my spine between my scapula (shoulder blades) went to the chiropractor and 1 treatment helped about 3 mo.

    Yea I do but the pain meds backfired on me so I can't help you there.

    Please make sure you are drinking lots of water daily.

    Plus make sure your BM's are moving daily.

    Then I'm in great PAIN I can not be paying attention to those two things because of the pain. This may not help you but maybe it will.

    I'm praying for you today to get a brake from the pain.
    It is so draining and one of the hardest things to have to deal with.

    We need a break from the pain no matter how short lived the break is.

    OT/I just looked at your bio. I live in Idaho too! Southern Idaho :) It's soooo cold nowdays. I think we would feel better if we lived in

    Take care,

    Hi Onnaroll! Where in Idaho are you, if you're comfortable saying, of course?

    I was born in Kellogg and spent a lot of time in Pinehurst and Kingston growing up. Beautiful area!

    Yes, yes -- I get these, and sometimes they crawl up my neck, into my head, and cause a migraine.

    Chiropractic helps me some (he does trigger point work -- soft tissue massage) -- Vicodin keeps it dulled, but doesn't eliminate it. I'm on effexor too ... can't tell if it is doing anything or not, but down't seem to be hurting me.

    Flexeril does nothing except give me dry mouth. Stopped working years ago.

    Ice and heat both help -- the type of spasm I get isn't inflammation, so heat is fine. Sometimes I alternate ice and heat.

    Not telling you anything you don't already know, except that you are not alone....

    You lucky gal, couer d'alene is beautiful. Are there even any ugly parts at all? I haven't spent much time there, except for the park and the occasional trip through town to get somewhere else, but it always looks so perfect.
