I have had excruciating earaches for a while. Went to the ENT and he said I have lots of inflammation of the joints, and he also sees I have muscle spasms in the area. Gave me a prescription for soma, for the muscle spasms. Game me a prescription for prednisone, for the inflammation. I asked him if there's anything I can get in the health food store instead. He said to take the meds for ten days and see if I feel better. Anyone know of a non-medication treatment for the chronic inflammation and muscle spasms?
