Customer Question
I have severe back...

I have severe back spasms. I have a prescription from my pcp for flexeril 5 mg to use one pill three times a day. I am also using Advil 200 mg. I have taken 4 Advil in the last 12 hours and took 4 flexeril in the last 12 hours. I am also using heat wraps and or bio freeze. I'm trying to control this without an er visit. My pcp is closed until Monday. I'm not sure if an urgent care can help and I am not sure if medical mutual will call this an emergency visit under our plan. Is there anything else I can do over the weekend until I can call my pcp on monday

I don't need an eye doctor. I have back spasms
Eye Doctor: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 8 months ago

I'm sorry you are suffering from a back spasm. May I suggest you stop the heat and apply an ice pack. Lay on your side (whichever side is more comfortable). If you have a bag of frozen vegetables, this works well as an ice pack).

Keep your knees bent and place a small pillow between your knees. If the spasm does not resolve within 2-3 hours, then a visit to an Urgent Care Center for an injection of Tramadol is suggested to relieve your spasm/pain. Your insurance should cover this visit.
