Can a muscle relaxant like diazepam make the pain of a neck muscle spasm even worse as the muscle is forced to relax?
Yesterday, I was prescribed some diazepam for its muscle relaxant qualities in dealing with a muscle spasm in my neck. I've noticed that the pain gets even worse, and far sharper, an hour after the diazepam is taken. Is this because the diazepam is "untying the knot" in my neck muscle, causing more pain because the muscle is being stubborn and doesn't want to be relaxed? I appreciate all serious answers. Thank you.
