Spinal Stenosis and Muscle Spasms

I get lumbar stenosis muscle spasms. It's been about 2 years now. Very painful. I've had an MRI which has shown Moderate to severe Lumbar and Cervical Stenosis. I was out eating lunch with my husband and a Spasm attacked me while eating. I just sat there and waited as it passed but the pain was unbearable  ! My husband felt terrible because he couldn't do anything to help me as we were right in the middle of a restaurant. I held back the tears and it took 10 minutes to pass. I've had others that lasted 30 minutes. My doctors never really told me what I can do to make them go away or subside. Do I exercise or do hot or cold treatments every night ? I just can't take the pain anymore. I don't take drugs for my pain. I do have fibromyalgia and take Gabapentin at night only to get a relaxing sleep. I was given muscle relaxers but everything I try makes me dizzy or makes me uncomfortable during the day. Any suggestions for home remedies. I am at my wits end.
Thank you
