Ibuprofen and muscle relaxers

Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen and muscle relaxers


402205 tn?1230484605 I was wondering about muscle relaxers. I've never had a problem taking them before. Should I take them? Will it make me relapse? Any help would be appreciated!
378497 tn?1232147185 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 you overused your shoulder to have caused this sudden problem? Do you remember hurting yourself?
Avatar f tn You should wait at a minimum of 12 but safely 24 hours between hydro and suboxone/ subutex. I don't know why your having spasms now, and I know muscle relaxers 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?
228463 tn?1216765121 I will deal with it just like you - I have tried the Xanax and Baclofen and they don't really touch it. I took 800mg of ibuprofen this morning and it took the edge off a little bit so I will do that. Thanks for the Hugs and Back at ya!! ((Hug)) ouch!!
1968463 tn?1374761413 Also, for those of you who have had surgery what muscle relaxant were you given and did DR refill it? I have been on valium and norflex, and it seems to really help the most when I take the valium, is this something that your DR's have refilled for you? Just curious what type of pain relief regimins you 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 you do before bed to get the most out of your night.
Avatar m tn She told me to take the perscribed muscle relaxers, and see her again in 10 days if the pain did not subside. Well, I phoned her last week and she ordered a CT scan, 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.
Avatar n tn 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!!
Avatar f tn I say muscle relaxers since your muscles are in a spasm (you'll need a prescription) AND then massage, pt and maybe acupuncture.
Avatar f tn 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??? 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 can build up by this, but this seems extreme. Any help would be so appreciated and thank you in advance.
Avatar n tn I have gone to countless appointments, purchased a new PosturePedic bed, have tried Vicoden and muscle relaxers, 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 with nerve damage. It made me depressed and suicidal, which is very unlike me.
Avatar n tn You might want to look up Compartment Syndrome- there is a test they can do for it. I was diagnosed with excertional compartment syndrome and had a fasciatomy done. My symptoms were similiar to yours, but got worse as time went on. Just a thought.
Avatar n tn Told me to stop taking pain killers, that nothing could be worse. Put me on muscle relaxers and Lidoderm patches and 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 you have not tried it, please do before Dr's try unneccessary surgery!!!
Avatar n tn prescribed muscle relaxers and 800mg Ibuprofen, which doesn't help.
Avatar f tn Maca, royal jelly, b6, wheatgrass juice, CoQ10....blah, blah, on and on. Spent a freaking fortune on supplements and vitamins. And 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.
Avatar f tn The doc could see my muscles were bulging in my back and put me on muscle relaxers. 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 with my right hand because my fingers feel tight and a little numb. Is this all common with whiplash or neck sprains?
205009 tn?1218563328 I am curretnly doing conservative care such as Ibuprofen, muscle relaxers, exercise and 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 with effacement of the ventral subarachnoid space and minimal diffuse ventral cord flattening. Foramina patent. C5-C6: Right paracentral HNP with right ventral cord indentation and moderate right foraminal narrowing. Left foramen patent.
1068834 tn?1294013592 Avoiding the possibility of going to ER, I managed to get to my muscle relaxers, and ibuprofen...relaxed for an hour, and 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 with 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..
Avatar n tn If so, treatments can include NSAIDs (like ibuprofen), hot and cold therapy, steroid injections, muscle relaxers, physical therapy and massage. In severe cases, sometimes surgery is performed. How long have you had arthritis in your neck? How is it being treated now? Is the current treatment working?
Avatar n tn I went back to the doctor and NOTHING. I have been on different medications from ibuprofen, to muscle relaxers. The Dr.'s say that they wouldn't even rule out that my asthma may have something to do with it.....any advice?
Business woman2 All of the muscle relaxers such as Flexeril require a prescription, but there are also some herbal products and supplements which can be purchased over the counter and might help--those you will have to "trial and error" to find out which works best for you. Good luck!
Avatar f tn 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 and then muscle relaxers for over a month along with 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.
Avatar n tn I can best describe the pain as if someone was squeezing my lower back and hips with a vise grip I repeated the same test 5 times in 7 days on exasperating the injury. My doctor prescribed muscle relaxers and 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.
401095 tn?1351395370 You know I slipped and relapsed about a month ago- but lately I have been taking both Motrin, Tylenol and muscle relaxers 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 you start feeling better, it is so hard to be in pain and feel like there is no relief! Good luck!
Avatar f tn To add to that, when I get sick with a cold/flu and develop a fever the pain strikes the hardest. I can't move or get comfortable and taking 800mg of Ibuprofen every 4 hrs barely takes the edge off so I end up rolling around in tears. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
1415174 tn?1453246703 I get it for 3 days and take Ibuprofen. Then it gets better then I stretch my arm and do the 2 Lb weights like usual for the frozen shoulder and the stiff neck comes back. I can'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 can't take muscle relaxers due to a arrhythmia.
230262 tn?1316649534 sorry to hear your in pain, i know it makes it difficult, and your 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 and a muscle relaxers, 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!!!!
Avatar n tn Said I have chronic pain and put me on muscle relaxers, slight help, but not an answer to my problems, I also take 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.
Avatar n tn Anyway, I have found that muscle relaxers like Skelaxin have helped me along with pain medicine until the muscle relaxers kick in. Just the muscles being so tight with the constant aches and shooting pains can zap the energy right out of you. Another neuro told me that taking tizanidine four times a day can also help with the muscle problem and help calm migraines and the tremors. I do not know if you have fibro, MS, lupus, or what as I am new. But, nice to meet you and LOL!
Avatar f tn Before surgery I was on Norco, muscle relaxers, neurontin, and a ridiculous amount of ibuprofen. My symptoms went from occasional throughout the years to constant right before surgery. It is major surgery tho... I had to have a baby sitter for a month. No lifting, cooking, cleaning or laundry for that long. I was out of work a long while as there were delays from the time I just couldn't work any more to the time I recovered from both of my surgeries and was able to return to full duty...
Avatar f tn I might even go swimming tonight to help with the aches and pains, we will see, no promises. i took a muscle relaxer yesterday and used heating pads on my backs legs everywhere it hurt had one wrapped around my face my kids were cracking up! Thank you for your response. I feel like doctors get mad if you dont tell them, so I do tell them the whole truth then they dont want to deal with the complex issue of addiction in someones history.
