Discussions that mention cyclobenzaprine

Spinal Cord Disorders board


Hi There, You most certainly did not ask a dumb question! I had ACDF C4-5 and 5-6 on 4/5/04, before my surgery i would have the pain and the migraine symptoms you are talking about! Sometimes they were unbearable and sometimes the pain was indeed positional. So i do know exactly what you are talking about. I still have alot of pain since the surgery, the only good thing that i can see that has came out of the surgery is that the headaches are pretty much gone. You said your Doc has you on Cyclobenzaprine???? That is Flexeril...... a muscle relaxant. I think that you need to talk to your doc and get something that will help you when you get the headaches or the symptoms of one coming on. I would think that once it has gotten as far as a headache the Flexeril isnt going to do anything for you as far as the headache pain. I hope i have helped some, if you have anymore questions just ask. No question is stupid! Hurdy
