Discussions that mention soma

Back Problems board

Welcome, I have never heard of this happening but I can see where it could. Perhaps it has something to do with the meds he's taking? Have you asked his Dr. about this? I would at least let the doc know what is going on. I was given Soma (muscle relaxant) and I never told the doc I couldn't sleep for more than an hour at a time, turns out 2 months later I mention the sleeping problem and it is a side effect of the soma. So you see you never know what is causing crazy things. Hopefully it will be as easy as changing some meds to get rid of this for him. I'm so sorry that you both have to go thru this added problem, it's hard enough to deal with the normal recovery but then to add anxiety attacks to it, oh how terrible.

God Bless
