Common Questions and Answers about Difference between skelaxin and flexeril


I've never tried Skelaxin but I am under the impression it's similar to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> soma. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span> offers me a small amount of relief, and soma offers me about 10x that amt however I developed an addiction to the soma and had to get off of it. my pain mgmt doctor has suggested Voltaren Gel (also called "diclofenac", it's an NSAID) and it goes on the skin. I have to take ambien or unisom to sleep most nights.
and he did some series of physical test like checking my eardrum,closing my right ear with his hand and saying some word,just to make sure that my left ear is ok,and at last pressing two spots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> my neck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> shoulder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he asked me if i felt some pains which i acknowledged <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> that is the main cause of this motorised noise that denied my sleep for one night.the doc.
0( I couldn't agree more with the idea of no chiro till you have been thoroughly diagnosed, ok? How much Motrin have you been taking? You can take 800mg up to 4 times a day, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Tylenol in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span>. Sometimes taking the alternating doses of those two meds around the clock (not just AS needed) will bring you some relief. Does your doc that you are seeing know about your substance abuse history? If not, tell him, and specifically request that you do not want any narcotic pain meds.
I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he shrugged his shoulders <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> said I have no idea <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back. Then we tried message therapy, it helps but only for a short period. and I have tried changing my pillows on my bed and sleeping in different positions and nothing seems to help for long term. What can I do?
Hi <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
I have been prescribed anti-inflammatories, non-narcotic pain relievers (skelaxin and tramadol), hydrocodone, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> lyrica. Some have helped for a while but not long term. I use ice <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a tens-unit which help short term. I am at my wits end as to what to do next. I have two degenerated discs (C-5 and C-6) but have come to believe it is muscular. It's like my muscles just tense up all the time and throb and ache.
I would take those if nothing else was around. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I would much prefer to have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span> then I would something like skelaxin. I'm just saying it too could have abuse potential. I took Soma once, it was before the days of "candy shopping", I don't remember anything about it. Now if I had my hands on it, I would probably try it until it did have an addiction to it. Cause I know there must be something good about it, thats why people are addicted to it.
When I would go see the Dr, he would just tell me that I was fine and give me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Skelaxin to help with muscle issues. Each Dr. I've been to has treated me the same way saying it is all muscle related when I know I am in so much pain and those muscle relaxers don't help. I've even been transferred to a chiropractor to see if that helped.
Anyway, I have another appointment with my neurologist in six months, unless something happens <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I need to schedule an appointment to see him sooner. In the meantime, he is sending me for bloodwork to check my Adolase, CPK and Myoglobin levels, since my CPK and Myoglobin levels were mildly elevated back in November when my face first went numb on one side back in November. He said the possibility of having some kind of myositis is pretty rare.
tool, there is a big <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>difference</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> addiction <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> physical dependence. Addiction is a mental sickness where a person has mental cravings for the high that a medication causes and results in lying, cheating and stealing to obtain the drug. Physical dependence refers to the normal dependence the body reaches after you take a med for a certain amount of time, and causes withdrawal symptoms when the drug is stopped. Are you taking the tramadol as prescribed?
Also, too much rubbing is not good, muscle has fluid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> the muscle fibers when torn or strained/sprained, these fluids are putting pressure on the nerves, it has to be babied a while to heal.......kinda like not picking at a scab, same idea. However mild pressure can relieve knots, someone pressing firmly with thumb or knuckles until the knot begins to loosen... OR, I use a tennis ball when hubby isn't handy, and lay on it....
5mg), Amitriptaline <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Skelaxin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> NONE of it is working. I need stronger NARCOTICS <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I don't know how to present this to the doctor without sounding like an idiot or drug seeker. I have never been in SOOO much pain in my life. My entire left side (leg, back, buttock) is in weird bouts of numbness, extreme pain, tingling, falling alseep feeling....it's horrible. I can't stand for more than one minute. How do I get it across to my doctor?
There is a space station orbiting our planet that humans travel back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> forth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span>, yet spinal surgery cannot be perfected!? I am 5 weeks post fusion L4-S1, and honestly, the constant misery of pain and an unstable back has gone. I should have done this 2 years ago! My back pain was at least 5 years. It 'clunked' constantly. The sensory loss spread upwards as the pain spread downwards. Sleep was disturbed everytime I tried to shift I would awaken in pain.
Am currently taking skelaxin 800mg, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span> 10mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> advil. Sad to say none of this really takes the pain away. I also use a heating pad. The only thing that really helps is constant rubbing--but I can't very well be sitting in a public or professional setting rubbing my breast! I need relief. I cant keep missing days of work because my breast hurt. I also occassionally have spasms in the left side as well.
I self medicate with Ibuprofen, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sleep on an ice pack every night. In addition, I lay on a baseball <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> roll over the rhomboid muscle while stretching to break up the spasms for some relief, the ball hits an area that feels like a rope that is in a horizontal position across the rhomboid. Pain radiates from the rhomboid up the right side of my neck, and down my right arm which includes the right shoulder. Headaches are almost constant.
