I was just at a neuro appt yesterday, after having some increased pain I went in for a follow up (haven't been there since 2007) they wanted to order a lumbar MRI with contrast to check and see if I re-herniated the disc or not.
My issue is the Soma 2x a day and Ultram 50mg. The internet says DO NOT TAKE the Ultram with a muscle relaxer. I took them together last night but a few hours apart and I was OK, sleepy but better. It's it REALLY ok to take them both. I know the dr. is the final word but I'm just nervous.
Also, back in 2007 they did a cervial mri because I had some shoulder pain and said there was a buldging disc and we'd watch it. Should I ask for them to both be scanned at the same time. I've had terrible shoulder pain, headache and dizziness since last weekend. I don't want to step on anyones toes but I don't want to go through the MRI twice if not necessary. Any suggestions?
