Spasm

Spasm

Hi all,

I’ve been dealing with back spasms like crazy the past few days and it’s been so uncomfortable. Back lower ribs will feel like they are being squeezed in a vice and spasm will sometime work it’s way up my body. My back lower area..flank and ribs mainly go into spasm or cause me a lot of pain when I’m lying down. Also issues with knots all in the side of my left neck and shoulders. Anyone relate?
