Re: I Have A Question

If he has any, he should take a muscle relaxer, use ice or heat on the area, and rest. If the pain gets worse, maybe a trip to the Er is in order to get some relief until he can see his doctor tomorrow. Let us know, will you?

Re: I Have A Question

So glad you are feeling better, and glad to have been of help. Keep in mind, if the muscle relaxers quit working, then you should see your doctor.
