My wife has been having severe back spasms & by back spasms, she says they are electrical in nature, usually start in the mid-left of here back. She says when they start, there is nothing she can do such as lying down, standing, etc to relieve the spasms. She does find that sometimes when she puts a tight wrap like a undersized girdle on covering that area, it sometimes helps relieve the spasms. She's been living on Hydrocodone & muscle relaxers for several days. Today her pain clinic PA gave her a prescription (oral) for Methylprednisolone & says it should help relieve her some until she can get set up for an epidural, of which she has had (2) previously. Is it possible that this corticosteroid she gave her today can help?
