Default Back spasms

I get horrible back spasms only at night time. Anyone else have this problem? I've tried things to relieve it but nothing seems to help!!

Aww Missy, I'm sorry to hear that. How "horrible" are they? Hospital level?
Hubby has to call an ambulance when I get mine, it's that bad. I get morphine.

Without really knowing your condition & any meds you might be taking, have you thought about exercising to loosen the muscles that are spasming. Maybe like walking, situps.

No not hospital type, not really painful just very annoying!! Can't sleep! I'm doing back exercises but haven't helped yet! Been to docs but they just want to drug me lol!!

I did buy a mattress pad topper and it seems to help a little.

You might want to try sleeping with your legs propped up on a pillow to releave back pressure. You'd have to do it for a few days to see if it helps. A good exercise for you back is moving in a circular direction like you have a hula hoop.

Have you gone to physio, chiro, or registered massage therapist?

LS - you sound like my mum. She has damaged nerves in her back from 2 car accidents and is on morphene daily. She also has a treatment where they kill off her nerve endings with laser and they take months to regenerate so this has meant that she has been able to reduce her meds and manage her pain better. She is still in constant pain though and has to walk with a cane at only 60 which is sad.

Missy do you get physiotherapy? My mum has it twice weekly and could not do without it. She has also tried accupuncture with some success. She does hydrotherapy twice weekly too which she loves (I think for the social occasion as much as anything). Reformer pilates may also be good for you. A lot of back issues are the result of a lack of core strength so improving that can only help.

Have you had an MRI? That could tell a lot of what is going on. I am having severe shoulder and neck pain and spasms and the MRI showed so many things wrong with that area, I have 2 herniated disks, reverse curve of my neck, severe arthritis in my shoulder and several other things i can not pronounce. My pain is so bad when it flairs up every 2 weeks for 4-5 days at a time that i am now on disability, and pain killers.
So, maybe see your doc and ask for an MRI?
