Flexeril and high blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Flexeril and high blood pressure


The stiffness is so bad in the mornings lately that I have to take 1 OTC aleve and this helps quite a bit but I don't take any more than just one aleve a day because of the high blood pressure I have (I take meds to control this too). Anyways, I think you will find flexeril will work well for your pain over the long term despite some slight reductions in effectiveness that you may notice over the long term.
For some reason I checked my blood pressure and it was very high. I have never, ever in my lifetime had any problems with my blood pressure. I called my doctor yesterday and spoke to her nurse which was a waste of time. She sounding as if she needed to go back to school. I was advised they were getting ready to close and that if it did not go down in 20 minutes go to the emergency room and that was it. I relaxed and it went up and down. My blood pressure never did go down alot yesterday.
I've since found out that it's really uncommon, but for some reason, it made my blood pressure skyrocket and heart rate drop. I have a general Anxiety disorder, and I took flexeril on and off for a couple of years. I, personally, didn't have any serious anxiety attacks that I would consider related to it. I do understand how helpful a muscle relaxer is in the medication regimen when you need it. I am recently off Soma, my muscle relaxer, and I am really noticing the difference.
I pulled every muscle it felt like,since then i had worse rectal pain and pressure i have to go and cant,if i do its blood ,and i get anxiety attacks before i eat cuz i dread the pain,so i basically been living on slim fast,boost,jello,juice and water cuz im afraid to eat.This is driving me nuts and causing deep depression,is there any end to this?!?
like labor contractions without having a break between the waves. The pain in my head was pressure-like and seemed to be stronger in my right side and it included my jaw and ear on the right side. I have NEVER felt this before and the strength of the pain was off the charts. It made me cry and taking breaths was hard to accomplish due to the pain. Due to not being able to take decent breaths, I could not call out to my mom.
I've been diagnosed with vasodepressor syncope--which means that my blood pressure drops randomly and I get dizzy. I'm on meds controlling that but it hasn't helped me feel better. I also have a very deviated septum and am going to an ENT next week. I have allergies too, but going to an allergist has not helped me. The thing that helps me the most is lying down, but obviously I can't spend my whole life on the couch. Do you two have any tricks that help you feel better?
I get severe Glutenal cramping from walking so awkwardly to lessen the impact as sitting and walking seems to aggravate sciatic nerve due to added pressure on the disc. Lying down relieves leg pain. Acupuncture and physio can not relieve my pain more than temporaraly. Physio has given me exercises and also tape strapping to keep me standing straight, not crouching. I have had a few spine stretching treatments with a machine - pulling lower back down whilst strapped to a table.
I take Tramadol, Zoloft, Flexeril, Restoril, high blood pressure meds, a statin for cholesterol, and meloxicam. I couldn't tolerate Lyrica or Neurontin, both made me very ill. My Rhuemy feels that the trauma from having had 3 major knee surgeries in exactly 7 months brought my fibro to fruitation. My grown children and my husband all understand that this disease is unseen but will take total control if I allowed it to do so.
OK - can anyone who has taken Lyrica and Cymbalta in conjunction with each other please give me your experiences --- and how long you've been taking them? I've been temporarily "diagnosed" with neuropathic pain issues (think Fibromyalgia). Waiting on some final test results to rule out any other Autoimmune Disease - but I believe I'll be finally diagnosed as Fibromyalgia. My Rheumatologist / Internist has prescribed Lyrica and Cymbalta together.
Clonidine is very helpful for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months. Thus, it is not easy, but it gets better and better over time and you can look forward to a drug free healthy energetic you in the future.
The results were normal except for a fatty liver.I also have diabetes type 2 and high blood pressure. I am about 100 pounds overweight.In the past three weeks I have been walking at a fast pace for about 40 minutes every other day. The doctor at the Urgent Care facility gave me a prescription for a muscle relaxant-flexeril and told me to take Alieve twice a day. I am concerned about the possibility of this being some type of cancer-kidney, bladder etc.
Clonodine (a blood pressure medicine) has been helpful with the chills and RLS symptoms. The only drawback is that I have cotton mouth like crazy and could sleep sitting up right now. However the WD's are much less severe this time--I am on day 3. I didn't have the guts to ask a doctor for the script, so I ordered it through a foreign pharmacy that seemed legitimate (BEWARE there are many fakes out there).
I, by the way, am a 55 year old female with no other medical problems other than high blood pressure, for which I am on medication for. I did take Caduet, a drug with blood pressure medication and cholesterol medication combined, for many years, but I stopped taking any cholesterol medication about two years ago because of all the warnings of muscle/liver damage side effects.
2) The fluttering sensation is common with PACs and happens when the atrias contract early, when the pressure is still high in the heart chambers (from the previous beat) so the blood from the atrial contraction "backfires". 3) You can't get VT from PACs. PACs are early atrial beats, and the heart chambers (ventricles) can't differ between a PAC and a normal sinus beat. Some PVCs may cause VT in those predisposed to it. Never PACs.
They took me to the hospital and they did not know what caused it. They just put me on flexeril and a neck brace and in a few days I was better. Then slowly after that I started to have other muscular problems, mostly with my back. My back would hurt so bad in the middle of the night I would get out of bed and lay on the floor with a pillow under my knees, just to rest. Everyone just passed it on to the fact that I was athletic.
My question is, do individuals with NCS generally have a fast heart rate? Also, my blood pressure is generally high averaging 140/90, but within the past year it has been as high as 180/117 (taken at the doctor's office). From what I've read I got the impression that individuals with NCS generally have low blood pressure. I don't get dizzy when arising from a sitting position, etc. The times that I have fainted it has come on suddenly without warning in either a standing or sitting position.
I am on 18 different prescriptions a day for heart, diabetes, asthma, emphasema, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, a back that spasms so badly the muscle sticks out over an inch.....oh well etc etc etc....don't just say don't take it....and walk away with some kind of halo .....walk in my shoes for a day.....oh I forgot I have 5 stents in my heart also. I am 65 years old and eat boys like you for breakfast.
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep. and Clonidine for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
But to deal with your withdrawal symptoms, see if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep, Clonidine helps with the creepy-crawly feeling and helps stabilize the blood pressure. All of these medications will make your life easier during this time. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
Ask them to explain it and they may say you will have a heart attack and if you ask them, what causes the heart attack, they will probably tell you high blood pressure from "stress." But if you ask most conventional doctors, "well how does stress do that?" Most of the time they will go back to the top "stress kills leads to heart attack etc.....
I take medications for high blood pressure and high cholesterol as well as Ibuprofen and Flexeril for chronic tension headaches. But my Dr claims that none of these would cause a reaction like this.
I went through 2 months of physical therapy, and was tested for everything via MRI's, EKG's, EEG's, ultrasounds, blood workups, X-rays, etc., for tumors, brain/spinal abnormalities, thyroid issues, aneurysms, cancer, diabetes, anemia, carotid artery blockages, heart problems, MS, ALS, Lyme disease...you name it, they checked for it. The only "finding" was from the MRI, which showed two herniations at C5-6 & C6-7, some stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.
About 2 hours later so much sugar has been put into storage that there is not enough left in the blood, and you get a low-blood-sugar emergency. Symptoms such as weakness and mental fog begin. 4. The body responds to the emergency by dumping adrenaline into the system. More symptoms follow from the high adrenaline, such as racing heart, anxiety, etc., etc., etc.. 5.
I mean that they paced in front of my door and I had a heart monitor and blood pressure every 5 min. I truly believe they messed me up bad and I would like to know just what happened ...I am still numb in both hands and feet. It is only getting worse since now I have pain everywhere in my body. Actually that is when all the back pain started..HMMM? Of course, they cover their hides with the statute of limitations..conveinient..
Now I am going cold turkey and all I have is some vitamins, and flexeril. The ortho doc put in Ultram for me. Should I take it. Will it help me with the w/ds. Bottom line - my reg. doc was not in. New doc wanted to be a **** and said no meds. Go cold turkey and deal with it. I asked if there were any non-narcotic meds to take (clonidine ect.), he said nope. Anybody have any Idea's. I need them. My wife understands how bad this is going to suck for me now.
we just found out he is diabetic now and has high blood pressure...so now I'm going to take care of him too... I take Celebrex for inflammation, pariet for Gerds and Tramacet when needed...I used to take Tyl 3 but it stopped me up..if you know what I mean...
I got hurt at work in June, and I have been taking physical therapy. I got a physical in January and everything was normal. Now my blood pressure was up. I had migraines. My pulse was high like110-120, but it sometimes varies. I hurt my shoulder. Now I also sometimes have sharp chest pains. My workers' compensation doctor told me to stop taking my medication that I have just recently started taking in September or October. I was on Lyrica, Celebrex, and Flexeril.
for about 2 years it was just a very low hum in RIGHT EAR and just random (but at nights when lying down trying to sleep) - i put up with it as wasnt too bad but now its got much worse (louder and every night) and there is also a ringing (like pressure build up when blood rushes to your head - that sort of noise you hear when you pass out) but that ringing is VERY low but possibly because the hum is overpowering it, I can hear the ring when I put my head under water in the bath, i noticed once
