Customer Question

Hello my name is***** have been suffering from back spasms for years. I have spinal stenosis and arthritis. The arthritis had spread to my shoulder and elbow. I am 41 and doc says I have to wait until I am 50 to receive total shoulder replacement. My back spasms are getting worse, been on zanaflex, baclofen and flexeril and all have lost their effects. I am trying to cope with the elbow, shoulder pain but back spasms are getting worse. Any suggestions?

I suggest you try Advil and Tylenol combined every 6 hours. That should help you a lot till you can see MD for stronger prescription.

I have decreased kidney function and cannot take nsaids. I do ice but with little relief.
Expert:  Dr. Sone replied 27 days ago.
Ice does not help much. It is to be used for a new injury. Heating pads for your condition. Since you have kidney problem' then take Tylenol 500 mg 2 tablets every 4 hours.
