Explained below..

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query,

I have read through your query,

From the description you have provided, your symptoms seems to be pertaining to muscle spasm due to a bad posture.

I would suggest you to do the following:

- Take an analgesic along with an anti-spasmodic or a muscle relaxant. For this you may consider Tab. Lyser-D twice daily for 3 days or T. ZERODOL-P twice daily.

- Also take Cap. Pan-D once daily half an hour before food, so as to avoid any resultant gastritis.

- Apply warm compresses over the involved area.

- Avoid pillow while resting.

Hope this helps.

Dear there, I have got Bell s Palsy last September, I have been improving. Unfortunately this month I have been facing an awkward symptoms in my left side of the face. I have pain behind my left ear (I think it is the 7th nerve). In the same time, when I close or blink my left eye, the muscle around my lips is contracted. Also, when I move my nose muscle, my eye lid also contracted. So. I went to see a neurologist, he told me that I have got Clonic Hemifacial Spasm !! he gave a medical prescription : 1- baclofen (5 mg) once daily. 2- physical therapy (Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) I have been searching about this condition. I can t believe that I have got Clonic Hemifacial Spasm because I have been watching a medical video about patients with the same condition and it seems different from the condition that I have got.. I went to another neurologist. He told me that I have got Synkinesis !! So, am I having Clonic Hemifacial Spasm or Synkinesis ? and what should I do ? thank you for your help. I really appreciate it.

She is a larger size & maybe the dosage is not enough. She will call the dr when he returns but for now????

I had bladder surgery on Tuesday. I am a 44 year old female weighing 250 pounds, am confined to a wheelchair and my ms has been spiralling downward throughout the summer. After surgery, when the anesthesiologist removed the breathing tube, I began having severe chest spasms and breathing problems. He said that if he could not get them under control, they would have to keep me in the hospital. They were able to give me muscle relaxers and valium by IV which worked, after giving me pills which did not work. Early this afternoon, I began wheezing, and it has gradually gotten worse. What could be going on?
