Question: 
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 blockages. However, instead I believe this may be a complication of diabetes called diabetic neuropathy. If true, there are other options for treatment you should discuss with your doctor.
Hope this helps,
Dr T
