Can anyone relate to this? I often have muscle spasms in my back. I see a massage therapist and a chiro to control them. Today's experience was different, perhaps more of a neurological problem than an inflammatory one???
One moment I was fine and then I was struck by a spasm in the lower left quadrant of my back. The pain went right through me--I could feel it wrap around my waist to my lower left belly. I felt nauseous within minutes. I had chills and goosebumps, and my arms, hands, and legs shook.
I took some Advil and laid down for an hour. The pain subsided, but when the Advil wore off, I had another sudden attack--every symptom returned at once. My husband massaged my back, and I felt a lot better. I parked myself on the couch for the rest of the night afraid to set things off again. While resting, I experienced muscles twitching and jumping up and down the whole left side of my back. Does this sound neuropathic to you?
