Today is the first time ever i was prescribed a muscle relaxer, believe it or not. I thought that is what they try first before other meds.. lol . Its called SKELAXIN its suppose to not make you sleepy, I csn feel it work cause my body feels light and flushed. its my second dose today, i noticed since a few hours after the first dose my joints are really stiff, my lower back [hips] and my neck and shoulders, anyone else experience this with muscle relaxers.? im thinking maybe my body is so use to be in a muscle spasm maybe its relaxing the muscles and making my joints expand and feel achy, I have severe straightening of the neck due to muscle spasms, same with my lower back and sciatica.
