Flexeril causes muscle injury

Flexeril causes muscle injury
I have used flexeril many times over a 15 year period. When I use them I hurt other muscles. This has happened so many times. I was just prescribed them by a new doctor and reluctantly I started taking them. They make me tired, to the point I don't want to get out of bed. This is the first time I have taken the long acting version. So I go and do the things I normally do like cut the grass. Then there it goes again, during a 14 day period I hurt 3 muscles while taking this medication. The doctors just shrug it off like I am crazy but it has happened time and time again. When off of this medication I don't hurt muscles like this. Has anyone else ever had this experience?

I am on methadone for long acting pain medicine with oxycodone for breakthrough.
I have 4 levels fused in my neck and have 2 bad discs in my lower back that need to be fixed.
I am in pain every day with a 7 when active, And a 9 at it's worse. If I do nothing but lay around I can get it to a 5.

Thanks and good luck to everyone.
