    Hello All, I am fairly new to posting here but I am not finding the Diagnosis code for extreme paraspinal spasm. I am looking though and found 724.1 but that is pain in thoracic spine and I looked though and found 781.0 but that is spasms in head. Please help

    if possible please tell me what avenues you take to find the Dx code.
