I was wondering about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers. I've never had a problem taking them before. Should I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> them? Will it make me relapse? any help would be appreciated!
I have an old shoulder injury that damaged my rotator cuff. I had surgery to repair it and now have developed a large area of calcium deposits that cause shoulder pain to flair up from over-use. It expecially hurts to lie on my back, when it's acting up. Is it possible that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> overused an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r shoulder to have caused this sudden problem? Do an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> remember hurting an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>rself?
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> should wait at a minimum of 12 but safely 24 hours between hydro and suboxone/ subutex. I don't know why an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r having spasms now, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers aren't worth a darn, but I would give it a few days and see if it goes away. I'm on suboxone now, and experience alot of joint pain daily. That could be because my job is very physical or maybe suboxone related; who knows?
I will deal an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> it just like an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> - I have tried the Xanax <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Baclofen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd they don't really touch it. I took 800mg of ibuprofen this morning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd it took the edge off a little bit so I will do that. Thanks for the Hugs and Back at ya!! ((Hug)) ouch!!
also, for those of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> who have had surgery what muscle relaxant were an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> given <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd did DR refill it? I have been on valium <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd norflex, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd it seems to really help the most when I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> the valium, is this something that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r DR's have refilled for an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>? Just curious what type of pain relief regimins an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> guys found the most helpful. I am having alot of trouble sleeping due to the pain, so I was sitting here thinking what all of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> do before bed to get the most out of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r night.
She told me to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> the perscribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd see her again in 10 days if the pain did not subside. Well, I phoned her last week and she ordered a CT san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>, which was yesterday. The radiologist called in the results to the doctor on duty, because my doctor after hours, could not be reached. The doctor on duty, whom I have never met, imformed me that I have a nodule on my left lung about 1.9cm, and told me to call my doctor on Monday.
I've been getting spams under each breast and it is so unreal at times my doctor has did everything and i really think she thinks im losing my mind!!
I say <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers since an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r muscles are in a spasm (an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>'ll need a prescription) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ND then massage, pt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd maybe acupuncture.
We did put heat to his chest area <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd neck but did not have any results. The dr said that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers would not help this type of pain. I am confused??? Is it that he has the spasms due to being used to a vigorous 2 1/2 hour workout everyday and now he is immobilized by it? I know that lactic acid an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> build up by this, but this seems extreme. any help would be so appreciated and thank an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> in advance.
I have gone to countless appointments, purchased a new PosturePedic bed, have tried Vicoden <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers, accupuncture, accupressure, physical therapy, electro-shock therapy, chiropractor, trigger point injections, cortazone/steroid injections, etc etc etc. Finally they gave me was a drug called Nortryptelene, which is a very strong antidepressant that also is used for patients an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> nerve damage. It made me depressed and suicidal, which is very unlike me.
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> might want to look up Compartment Syndrome- there is a test they an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> do for it. I was diagnosed an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> excertional compartment syndrome and had a fasciatomy done. My symptoms were similiar to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>rs, but got worse as time went on. Just a thought.
Told me to stop taking pain killers, that nothing could be worse. Put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Lidoderm patches <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd Lunesta for my sleep issues. Then, he sent me to PT for Myofascial Release. Been going for 2 1/2 months and I'm at about 95% pain free. If an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> have not tried it, please do before Dr's try unneccessary surgery!!!
Maca, royal jelly, b6, wheatgrass juice, CoQ10....blah, blah, on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd on. Spent a freaking fortune on supplements <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd vitamins. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd what happens??? My usual positive OPK on CD11 or CD12 (the past year, always CD11 or CD12) didn't happen until CD14. No big deal right? Wrong. Because of OH stressful job, he's not always up to bd'ing. Not that I ask a lot, but oh, well. So I plan things out. I want us to bd the day b/4 the positive OPK, just bc I got pregnant last two times by doing this.
The doc could see my muscles were bulging in my back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers. They worked for two days pretty well but now I'm having bad pain and stiffness in my left shoulder blade. I'm also still having a burning feeling in my neck, shoulder and arm as well as numbness and tingling. It's also very hard for me to make a fist an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> my right hand because my fingers feel tight and a little numb. Is this all common an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> whiplash or neck sprains?
I am curretnly doing conservative care such as Ibuprofen, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers, exercise <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd PT. My last imaging study showed: C3-C4: Small focal central HNP mildly indents the ventral cord margin. Foramina patent. C4-C5: Shallow broad central disc protrusion an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> effacement of the ventral subarachnoid space and minimal diffuse ventral cord flattening. Foramina patent. C5-C6: Right paracentral HNP an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> right ventral cord indentation and moderate right foraminal narrowing. Left foramen patent.
avoiding the possibility of going to ER, I managed to get to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd ibuprofen...relaxed for an hour, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd then was able to go about my day in "normal pain".. It has been 10 days since that incident. I have called my doctor and spoke an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> her assistant, but neither of them seem to be worried; and my ultrasound is being done at another office/clinic. My period was three days late, and lasted about two days longer than normal and was more painful than normal as well..
If so, treatments an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> include NSaIDs (like ibuprofen), hot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd cold therapy, steroid injections, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers, physical therapy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd massage. In severe cases, sometimes surgery is performed. How long have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> had arthritis in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r neck? How is it being treated now? Is the current treatment working?
I went back to the doctor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd NOTHING. I have been on different medications from ibuprofen, to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers. The Dr.'s say that they wouldn't even rule out that my asthma may have something to do an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> it.....any advice?
all of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers such as Flexeril require a prescription, but there are also some herbal products <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd supplements which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> be purchased over the counter and might help--those an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> will have to "trial and error" to find out which works best for an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>. Good luck!
The core exercises they told me to do made my low back hurt so I stopped doing them. I was on aleeve for a couple of weeks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers for over a month along an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> Voltaren for over a month. I finally stopped taking them as well because I saw no difference. I tried tramadol apap for pain and it did nothing. I have tried ibuprofen and it does nothing also. I don't have pain in the morning, it's after I sit in the car on the way to work.
I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> best describe the pain as if someone was squeezing my lower back and hips an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> a vise grip I repeated the same test 5 times in 7 days on exasperating the injury. My doctor prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd anti-inflammatories. I also went to physical therapy for the next 5 months. While it provided relief I am still not at 100%, and have not really been able to get my run time to where it should be. The only time have serious pain is when I run.
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> know I slipped and relapsed about a month ago- but lately I have been taking both Motrin, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tylenolan> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers at night... it has been helping. also, I only work 2 days per week and the days I don't work I try to exercise and get a massage every couple weeks. I hope an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> start feeling better, it is so hard to be in pain and feel like there is no relief! Good luck!
sorry to hear an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r in pain, i know it makes it difficult, and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r right it is hard to tell how much is legit and how much it w/d, yesterday was day 7 and my back started hurting a little, so i think that might be a real problem, i took ibuprofen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers, didnt really seem to help, i just want everything to go back to normal b4 i started these pills. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!! STaY WaRM!! PaIN THRIVES ON COLD!!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!
To add to that, when I get sick an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> a cold/flu and develop a fever the pain strikes the hardest. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'t move or get comfortable <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd taking 800mg of Ibuprofen every 4 hrs barely an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean>s the edge off so I end up rolling around in tears. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
I get it for 3 days and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> Ibuprofen. Then it gets better then I stretch my arm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd do the 2 Lb weights like usual for the frozen shoulder and the stiff neck comes back. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'t seem to get rid of it. I'm not sure this is the site to post this. anyone know whether I should stop the exercises for a while or continue them? I don't want to reverse my progress? I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'t an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> muscle relaxers due to a arrhythmia.
Said I have chronic pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers, slight help, but not an answer to my problems, I also an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> antidepressant, and another put me on sinemet for restless leg syndrome for the pain. I am also probably perimenopausal, irregular. and have polycyctic ovaries. I am 48. I do not want to not be able to function this early in life, and still have many patients to help. I was wondering if I should look into an endocrinologist for a possible answer.
One doctor told me I haveBack Pain an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> Sciatica, Hematuria and he went on im his notes I have MS <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd the MS is called arthralgia <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> problem.Now another told me that Diagnostic were that he note Facet arthrosis in the lower spine -L4-L5 and L5-SI and mild facet hypertrophy.But no signifian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>t disc bulge or protrusion is seen at any level. Disc space are well maintained. Now after my baby was born 2 month she came down an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> Baterial Meningitis after I stop breastfeeding expain that to me.
This is day #6 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd for 3 days the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> spasms have been terrible. He is in a sling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd swathe. Taking 400mg ibuprofen every 4 hours and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tylenolan> #3 about every 6 hours. The dr said no heat to the shoulder area bc of the break, only ice. We did put heat to his chest area and neck but did not have any results. The dr said that muscle relaxers would not help this type of pain. I am confused???
anyway, I have found that muscle relaxers like Skelaxin have helped me along an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> pain medicine until the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>muscle</span> rel<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>xers kick in. Just the muscles being so tight an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> the constant aches <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd shooting pains an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> zap the energy right out of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>. another neuro told me that taking tizanidine four times a day an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> also help an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> the muscle problem and help calm migraines and the tremors. I do not know if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> have fibro, MS, lupus, or what as I am new. But, nice to meet an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> and LOL!
