New member question. Hi everyone. I was on the internet searching for answers and came across this forum. My question is: has anyone thought that it is possible that taking methocarbimol (a muscle relaxer) make their osteoarthritis hurt worse? My joints (especially my hip hurts so much now. It's nearly unbearable. I was thinking maybe the muscles are loose therefore the connective tissue is weak causing my bones to move out of place creating friction, swelling and pain. This pain disturbs my sleep terribly. I only get a few hours of sleep a night. Not getting enough sleep can also cause these problems also so its just this big vicious circle.
