I'm just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience.
I've suffered with neck spasms a few times an usually get them sorted in a few days with diazepam, paracetamol and ibuprofen, along side gentle neck exercise and hot and cold compresses. The docs said that the idea was to trick the body into thinking its not in pain so that the muscles release the spasm.
This time i'm on clexane injections so can't take the ibuprofen therefore can't get the pain under control long enough for the muscles to relax. I've had the diazepam and co codamol, even tramadol but nothing I would usually do is working.
I saw an osteopath yesterday who said that its going to take a while as its been in spasm for 2 weeks and I can't afford to see him more than a couple of times.
I can't have acupuncture because of the blood thinners and chiropractors won't touch me either.
I know i'm impatient but i'm so used to getting this sorted quickly and it is just frustrating that I can't take any anti inflammatories. Has anyone had anything else that has worked? My doc seems to be at a bit of a loss.
