Diabetes and spasms

I have been getting severe spasms everywhere,but a lot in my rib area I have been given muscle relaxers, 2.5 mil. valium and pain meds. but its not helping. could this be caused from my arteries? I have had a quad. bypass, and I'm diabetic. this has been going on over 2 years and getting worse. It's everyday all day long. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.I'm 59 years old also.

Hi Sue,
This could be  angina caused by more blockagesHowever, instead I believe this may be a complication of diabetes called diabetic neuropathyIf true, there are other options for treatment you should discuss with your doctor.
Hope this helps,
Dr T
