Robaxin and Inflammation Markers?

Has anyone experienced changes in their bloodwork after being on Robaxin? My docs suspect a post-surgical infection and I am getting frequent bloodwork. My sed rate and CRP have been increasing regularly, but my latest bloodwork shows they are decreasing (though still outside the normal range). The only change is that my pain doctor has had me start robaxin for the muscle spasms.



  • I did have my CRP numbers go down with the introduction of soma. It helped relieving the muscle spasms and letting up some pressure to allow the number to go down a bit, I will and more than likely ride outside the norm, as that is to be expected with chronic pain. So if your still in pain sounds reasonable for the CRP number to be out some.
  • Thanks for the response, Tamtam,

    That makes sense to me. I have doctors working on this, but I have had so many experiences over the long course of this injury, and the many surgeries that followed, where the doctors have missed something or not been thorough enough. I feel like I have to be my own detective most of the time. I am so glad I found this board as a resource!
