Good on you Braddo. You are not a nutter until we say you are! Good idea taking 5mg of valium. Help the spasms and help the anxiety that goes with them. And 5mg of valium won't put you on the most wanted list. Being under medicated in flareups doesn't make sense. Hang in there.

Sorry to hear your back in playing up. When my back decides to throw a party and play up besides the obvious pain medication, I can't go past my electric heat pad. This really helps to relax me and my muscles. Also just standing under the shower with the hot beads of water on my back...arrrrah lovely. I know it soundd simple, but it really does help me.
Hope your feeling better soon

Sorry that you are still having so much pain. As far as your experience with the hospital goes, I think that if all our threads were available to you, you would find that almost all of us have been through a similar experience. At the moment, medical science does not really understand exactly what causes some people to end up with chronic pain, and others may have awful looking scans and xrays but have little or no pain. Therefore, they offer us whatever they have that might help. Quite often it doesn't. This is where pain management comes into it.
However, anyone who attends a pain management course really needs to go there with an open mind and be prepared to try everything that is offered. I hope that they have a group course as part of their program because you can get some really good ideas and thoughts from others. Try to put your past experience with this hospital behind you so that you can get the best benefit from your program.
Not every day is a good day, but there is good in every day.
