I'm hoping someone can help my husband who has suffered from severe muscle spasms in lower back for almost a month. He normally gets these spasms about twice a year but they disappear in about a week. X-rays are negative and doctor has been treating him with muscle relaxants and pain medication. He can only stand and walk for a few minutes then the spasm grabs him again. After an hour or so, his muscles begin to relax but when he tries to change position it comes back with a vengeance. He's tried everything we can think of, but it doesn't seem to be getting better. Any comments will be appreciated. Thanks.
