If you really are having muscle spasms then your regular doctor will probably prescribe them without you having to ask. Thats what happened with me anyway.

Hello Dan,

Pain medication is not going to solve what is wrong, it is only going to cover up the pain and problem.

Please do see a neurologist and get his/her opinion.
