Muscle Relaxers

I guess this goes here? I don't think I asked about this already. If I did somewhere else a while ago forgive me.

So for the muscle pain. Fibro I guess is the cause. I've been taking zanaflex for a while now. (Gabapentin not only did nothing for my pain it made me stupid. Like stop a conversation in the middle of a word because I just about forgot where I even was stupid. I can't do my job like that.) I only take it at night because it means I don't wake up in sever pain in the middle of the night/early morning. Even when I exercise regularly this happens.

The problem with this is that it makes me hallucinate. If I take 2mg it does nothing for my pain. If I take 4mg (prescribed dosage) I have auditory hallucinations. If I take 8 I have visual hallucinations. I've tested these facts repeatedly.

I tried Flexeril and I woke up in MORE pain. Full body pain. Cheers if anyone can tell me how that works.

Anyone have any muscle relaxer suggestions? I need to head to my doc and see if my PCP will take over the muscle relaxer prescription. I already got my diagnosis for her and I don't want the copay for a specialist just for a script.

Re: Muscle Relaxers

I had a pinched nerve in my back 3 years ago, doctor prescribed me Flexeril, and I still have three quarters of that bottle left. I noticed 0 relief of my back pain, and a 3-day hangover after taking even a half of one of them. No thank you...

Re: Muscle Relaxers

Skins ry400 compression wear to sleep in. Helps to feel better in the morning. Dead sea salt baths in the absence of veing able to take magnesium orally. It's winter here so electric blanket.

Other flare management strategies. Electolytes - bone broth or hydrolyte. Probiotics. Exercise which you already so with the yoga. Peppermint tea

Codeine. But now that's only available on prescription here and costs big $$$ plus 3rd degree from doctors.

Re: Muscle Relaxers

Aaannd..... just realised this was posted in the meds section so what I have said is irrelevant. I try to avoid this section together.

Re: Muscle Relaxers

That's quite silly. A pinched nerve is nerve pain not muscle pain. Flexeril is for muscle pain. I have both and joint pain as well because I'm JUST that special.

I would NOT take that medication after 3 years. You probably just developed a new kind of antibiotic.

With my sensory disorder I couldn't do compression. I have many weird sensory things. I'll try the magnesium and electrolytes though!

Also. Why the hell does it let me put an arrow pointing right on my post? wth could that possibly signify? The title of my post is right over here? My post sucks, please scroll past it using the scroll bar over that way? WHY?
