Suggestions for muscle spasms?

I am a little over 3 months post-op. Around 3 weeks ago, I injured myself when trying to open a window that was jammed. Things have been really rough for me. I started out with pain and now I have terrible knots that won't release that are giving me the same symptoms prior to surgery: dizziness and vision changes. I was doing really well right before this happened. I'm back on muscle relaxants and wearing my TENS unit. Tried the ice/heat but didn't help much. Just wondering how long it will take before the knots get smaller. I did get another x-ray a week ago and the NS said that everything looks great. My appointment with NS is next Thursday, but in the meantime, I'm wondering if I might have herniated another disc? How will I know? Do you think I should request for another MRI? I'm really worried! :-S:worried:
