Muscle spasms- what do you do?

Postby toport20 » Sat Feb 11, 2012 12:34 am

Hi, I was taking diazepam, for 2 reasons. One was for spasms, and one for anxiety. My regular doctor had to leave and now I am stuck with someone that doesn't want to help with anything. They referred me to a psychiatrist because I was on the diazepam, she wants me off all of it. So now I am having really bad spasms plus lots and lots of anxiety. I'm also coming up on surgery, which isn't helping either.

Thanks. :cry:

Can you ask your new doctor for a referral to a pain clinic? Maybe your NS might help. Good Luck.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunatley, I do go to a pain clinic and they will not prescribe it either. They think I'm taking it just for "mental" problems. I just feel like I'm being pushed back and forth. I dunno.
