Tonight I ended up stuck on the floor for an hour because everytime I moved my back spasmed. It took an hour for me to even be able to stand to make it to my bed and I cant stop crying. Just feel really useless and weak right now and a burden on my friend/roommate.

      you're not useless or a burden. your disability does not make you something to deal with. my friend who has severe scoliosis uses what he calls a tens unit, and ive used it before for spasming, it's like electro massage stuff ? im not super familiar with it but it could help you if you spasm a lot. so sorry to hear you're feeling this way, you're not alone.

      So sorry to hear that 😥 my neck and back have both gone out several times in the past 15 months. It’s brutal. There’s nothing like spasms and feeling like a turtle on its back. Hope you get better soon!

      I'm really sorry for you! Your situation sounds very difficult. Did you try painkillers? Some types are very strong and can relieve your pain.
