Muscle spasms after nerve blocks...Skelaxin anyone?
Hi again my new friends.....
I had two "Transforaminal - thoracic epidural nerve root blocks"
to get the pain from my fractured / displaced ribs under control.
I had the procedure (my fourth) done 3 days ago and have been
having muscle spasms ever since. My PMD called in an Rx for Skelaxin.
I remember taking this med initially right after the accident.
Just wondering what your experiences are with this muscle relaxant.
I remember having headaches at first when I started taking it.
I am starting 800 mg. 2 x day.
(I also take 20 mg. Oxycontin 2 x day and 10 mg. Percocet for BT pain.)
Any advice would be appreciated.
