Muscle Spasticity

I'm suffering with chronic muscle spasticity and wondered if it's considered as a relapse. It started in November 2014 as a diagnosis of tendinitis but lately I have tried muscle relaxants and the pain eased off dramatically but not completely. I have been on Diazepam lately which came up with the muscle spasticity theory as my pain virtually disappeared. I can't obviously take them all the time so I have been given Baclofen as a lighter muscle relaxant instead. Baclofen helps for a while with Paracetamol & Tramadol but not enough that I can return happerly to work as it doesn't take long to wear off. So would a course of steroids help me and should I push my MS nurse of some because she is adamant it's not a relapse but I'm otherwise convinced it would help.
