Suggest treatment for muscle spasms and tightness in the chest
Slip disc. Needs Xray, MRI
Thanks for the query.
This appears to be possible slip disc including nerve compression by the disc in the back.
This can also lead to muscular spasm and tightness in the back which gets aggravated in bending forwards or lifting weights.
I suggest you get an Xray and MRI of the lumbosacral spine, as these investigations will help find the cause of your problem. Trigger point injections will only help in reducing the muscle spasm but not treat the cause of it.
You can take Tablet Diclofenac and Thicolchicoside combination twice a day for 5 days after meals and Tablet Ranitidine 150mg twice a day for 5 days before meals. Apply hot packs to the painful regions.
Do upload the reports of the Xray and MRI for my review.
I hope I have answered your query.
I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
