I’ve recently experienced the agony of one of my back muscles going into spasm. It was so bad that we had to call a GP out, who prescribed me diazepam which has helped significantly. I already take Tramadol, Naproxen and Pregabalin for past back issues.
Although I’m no longer in agony, thank God, the muscle that went into spasm is still very painful, particularly first thing in the morning. I’m trying to keep moving but at the same time I don’t want to overdo things.
My question is, am I doing the right thing in giving my back time to recover? I run out of Diazepam on Wednesday and am frightened of the muscle going into spasm again. Should I just resume my normal life and go back to work on Wednesday, which involves a lot of sitting which is never good for the back, or should I continue to take it easy at home until I’m happier that there’s no risk of it happening again? Perhaps there are people out there who’ve experienced this before and can advise?
Thanks for any help.
