I take 15-20 mg vallium a day to help with my muscle pain/spams in my neck/shoulders and back the doctor cannot find a reason for the pain yet its kind of a mystery after many tests, i have read vallium is not good for long term use but im wondering is it really harmfull to use long term? I find it helps some/most times. It also helps with my anxiety some.

While valium is a benzodiazapene which are addictive, if taken as prescribed and no more, you are ok to take over long periods of time. You need to remember that when you want to stop taking it, you will have to taper off it, not quit abruptly.
Have you considered a muscle relaxant like skelaxin or flexaril? You may find them more useful as far as pain, but they will not address the anxiety like the valium does.
Just a thought. Keep in touch,
