I also have no lesions on my spine and I have pain in my neck and shoulders. what has helped me a lot is massages, and I found someone who understands ms. the doctor can wright you a prescription and you can wright it off at the end of the year. good luck.

I take 10 mg of Baclafen 2 times a day and 20 mg at night before bed. If you keep on a scheduale, it really does help. I get spasms in my lower back and hips, drives me absolutely nuts!!!

HI, I TOO HAVE BEEN SUFFERING LIKE THAT. I HAD TO GO TO MY GP AND SHE GAVE ME NAPROXEN AND CARISPODOL. AN ANTIFLAMMATORY AND PAIN KILLER,MUSCLE RELAXANT. I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE COMING FROM. I HAD THAT FOR A SOLID YEAR AND I'M SORRY TO HEAR THAT YOU ARE GOING THRU. IT'S A NAGGING PAIN AND SOME DAYS IT CAN BE DISABLING. YOU DON'T WANT TO GO AND DO NOTHING BECAUSE OF IT. MAYBE YOU NEED TO CALL YOU GP OR NEURO AND SEE IF THEY WILL GIVE YOU SOME MUSCLE RELAXANTS. I HOPE YOU GET RELIEF SOON. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF.
