I rarely catch a cold or flu; thank God for that! What I usually suffer from is back pain because of lamig. The muscles in my upper back become tense, stiff, and hard. When you have lamig sa likod, you also get this heavy feeling that seems like you’re catching a flu, making you want to abandon the daily grind and just take a rest.
What Exactly is Lamig?
“Lamig” is “muscle spasm” in English. Medical News Today defines muscle spasm as “a sudden, involuntary movement in one or more muscles.” Muscle spasms usually happen because of fatigue, stress or anxiety, exercise, or insufficient water intake. Athletes, overweight individuals, pregnant women, older adults, and those with diabetes, liver, thyroid, or nerve disorders are prone to muscle spasms.
How I Remedy My Lamig or Muscle Spasm
I usually get relief from the discomfort of having lamig sa likod by having a finger pressure massage to ease my back pain and by putting pain relief patches. Nope, I don’t take pain relievers; I’m just not used to them. And since last year, I’ve also been taking Lola Remedios whenever my lamig sa likod strikes. I noticed whenever I drink 1 sachet of Lola Remedios before bedtime that my back isn’t as stiff and hard when I wake up the next day. My body malaise or the feeling of being unwell also disappears.
