Re: L5/S1 Recovery

[QUOTE=wigado1;5126281]Thanks for the replies, it feels like the muscle I think, it's different to what the pain felt like before surgery. I have Flexeril that I take at night. I mentioned it at my 2 week follow up. Dr didn't seem to concerned about it at the time.[/QUOTE]

Dear wiado, I remember that i thought that i would die without muscle relaxers i had to take them in the day even when i was only taking pain medicine ar night & the dr told me muscle spasms can pull on the nerves. Does the prescribing info on the flexeril bottle say to take it during the day? If yes i would have to call & get a different one that i could take in day because flexeril makes me so sleepy & while on phone let the dr know about the new pain. I hope that this gets better soon!
