Avatar f tn I took 20mg a day off and on, like twice a week for 2 years, and then started taking the 20 mg every day for the l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st 13 years.

237152 tn?1206654636 Flexaril should help you sleep while you are off the opiates. They don't know an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> Flexaril works, but it does. Soma does give you a "buzz" and if you have the shakes from withdrawal, the soma an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>willan> actually make you have more anxiety. The flexaril an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>willan> help you relax and it isn't addictive. Some people though it has a tendency to make sleep for an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan> periods of time or give you a hang over feeling when you wake up.

So poor blood circulation is creating preasure in your brain hence the yawnig thing....Forcing a yawn an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>willan> expell the carbon dioxide and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>willan> help,,,So Ive been told..
Avatar f tn Is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span> a addictive drug? I just got off of percocet and I don't want to get dependent on something else that may be addictive.
1401023 tn?1280784958 I took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span> (10mg 3x day) for thoracic muscle spasms, my muscles lock up and it is very painful. Yesterday 15 min after my dose and 3 hrs after the dose of my other meds, I had a severe anxiety attack and landed in the ER. It started that I couldn't get a deep satisfying breath, so I called my husband to take me to the ER. By the time he got here my fingers and toes were numb so I had him take me to the ER.
1415174 tn?1453246703 Hi Tuckamore, FYI, I went to the doctor yesterday and he said flexeril is known to cause skipping heart beats and other problems like that and I have to go off of it tonight. So, I went off the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flexeril</span> l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st night and has some trouble sleeping but took an antihistamine and I seem to be doing ok today. So, far my heartbeat is better. I hope that does the trick. I looked up the side effects of flexeril and <1% get the arhythimias and so I guess I'm in the 1% as usual.

I'm on day 8 and only 20 hrs of sleep. With the worst case of RLS ever. Don't crave the drugs, but the racing thoughts r making me delirious. When does it get better. Snots, squirts and vomiting. Went on for 6 days. Liquid N-Quel works wonders also amodium aD. Godsend. Need some sleep the creepy crawlies gone and racing thoughts to disappeare, before I go crazy.
655875 tn?1295698707 I don't know an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> it takes to get this out of my system. My body does burn from the inside out and I do have bone pain, just not as bad as that first taper I did. Plus I can sleep 2-3 hours at a time before waking up. Last time I was up 4 days straight.
Avatar f tn Im sorry that happened. I plan on not going to the ER for a very <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> time after my l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st incident so I am trying to do what i can for what I have right here at home. Im sorry that the doctor said that to you. Isnt funny when they insult you to your face or say something inappropriate you just look at them and nothing comes to mind of what to say..just tears. and then, when ya get home and you why didnt i say something to that?! I hope you get better treatment in the future.
Avatar f tn I was wondering-- <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>how</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> many of you deal with nerve pain, where does it affect you and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> often? I start to feel yucky by about 9pm every night with the aching in my right chest and armpit area. I take 900 mg of gabapentin plus a tramadol to control the pain. Every morning I wake up with this awful aching and have to take another 100 mg of gabapentin and a tramadol. If I dont' take something right away, the pain gets to be about a level 10. It literally hurts worse than labor and delivery.
Avatar n tn My question is, <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>how</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> dangerous is a bulge at C6/7. I am worried that if I fall or cause any sudden movement, it may herniate. Does this area effect any other part of the body besides the arm? Everyone, my PCP, my neurologist and my PT have given me different answers. I want the dizziness and vertigo to stop. any advice?
420469 tn?1217650963 I'm at the complete end of my rope here, holding onto the very l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st thread. I have been having some new and interesting symptoms over the l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st couple of weeks that have put me a little on edge. I have had 2 urine tests now come back positive for blood and protien. I understand this can be normal for some people, but I know that this has never been the norm for me.
1295859 tn?1285271491 One MRI was on a 1.5 T. The report for the l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st one I don't know. This l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st report is rather lacking information. It said it was an open MRI machine and it wasn't. They did do like one min it one machine that just did my head before moving me to the normal MRI machine. But this is also the report that states I am male and I am not. It doesn't say anything more about strength.
Avatar f tn I had the epidural l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st July, and after I had the epidural, my pain increased. I told my physical therapists that I shouldn't have even bothered. I was hoping that one last shot would get me over the hump. They an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>willan> only let you get three shots a year, and that was my last one for the year. The reason that they chose an epidural for my last shot as opposed to another block was because I had a large black and blue on my back for an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan>er than the shot actually worked.
Avatar f tn I am having a hard time stopping and I know I need to . I have taken this for a <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> time. First, I was prescribed this med and then I found other ways to get it. Knowbody knows I take it as much as I do. anyone....have some advice?
555358 tn?1292535661 Hi...I know u r still waiting to see positive results and so far u have been lucky not having al the xtra symptoms of the surgery.
