Hi everyone I'm new to this site but I've found it to be very helpful. I'm 5 weeks post op from n ACDF C/5 C/6, still having a lot of muscle spasms in the shoulder & shoulder blade region. Called my NS yesterday & they called me in another script of muscle relaxers ( Soma 350mg ) I've taken them before but for some reason this time I had a really bad reaction to them . I broke out in hives from head to toe, headache, flushing , slight fever , went to the E.R. they gave me a steriod to start taking to counter act the soma & I was just wondering if anyone else has had the same problems? I swear sometimes I wonder when it's gonna get better, I go back to the NS the 29th for my 6 week check-up hopefully he'll turn me loose to go back to work but I am a bartender & server & with the back still in spasms I don't think it looks to good. He told me it don't look like I need PT. So we'll see. I appericate any advice.
