    Welcome to Spine-Health

  • I am taking Lyrica for nerve damage, but I don't think it has had time to build up in my system yet. I took a hydrocodone last night cuz the pain got so bad and it took the edge off which was nice.
  • It sounds like you might be having some pretty nasty muscle spasms. Do you have some good muscle relaxers? I was on flexeril before surgery, but was given valium afterwards and still take them for my neck spasms. Don't hesitate to call your doctor and let him know about what's going on. If you're having bad spasms and have muscle relaxants, you might need a stronger one until your muscles settle down.

    But again, even though spasms are very common post-op, it's always a good thing to talk to your doctor when new stuff comes up after surgery.

    Take care and please keep us posted.
  • however, it puts me to sleep! and my doctor was not to keen on prescribing them to me. i did call and leave a message yesterday so hopefully i will hear from him today.
  • I found it surprising that your doc was not keen on prescribing muscle relaxants for you. That's the one medication that's always been prescribed easily, even by my PCP who hates prescribing anything.

    Anyway, let us know what the doc says.

  • as this is my surgeon's office that doesn't like prescribing much of anything.

    woo hoo...NS office called and seem concerned so I am going in tomorrow morning so the ycan take a look and hopefully figure out what is causing this muscle pain :)
  • Chalk one up to talking to your surgeon when experiencing unusual problems. Please let us know what they say, I'm interested to hear what's going on.

  • Saw my NS today and my uncontrollable jerking has him concerned. I was great right after surgery and now I am regressing to how I was prior. so, I have an MRI scheduled for monday to see my cervical and lumbar spine as I have no feeling in my right foot at all.

    Wish me luck :)

  • I was very happy to Supra Shoes, I gave his work number down, and do not Supra Muska know whether this move that my dollar is counterfeit.
