It may help: Along with medications- tylenol, (acetaminophen) ibuprofen, meditation, sleep, massage, vacation ;#40;to vegas, but don't gamble too much otherwise the spasm will get worse;#41; etc. Follow up with ur dr for any concern. Take care! http://www.Rightdiagnosis.Com/sym/head_spasm.Htm.

Stress and spasm: Muscle spasms can be the result of tension. Massage can be helpful in the acute stage of a muscle spasm. Progressive muscle relaxation can be a tool that you can learn from a stress management program or from a recording, or stress reduction workbook, or an app.
