Ok I am now going to ask some questions to see if anyone can tell me something. How long is it going to take for the swelling to go down in my neck? It still feels swelled up. I feel worse in the morning waking up because I am sure I sleep weird. Does anyone else have the problem the more you talk the worse it swells up? It is like first thing in the morning when I wake up I feel like crap and then at night before bed I feel exhausted and my neck hurts, is this normal? How long will the doctors let me stay on muscle relaxants? I am 3 weeks po and I see the NS on the 19. I do not feel like calling them because I do not want to seem like a bother. Ok here are some more questions, I get really hot when I eat. Kind of like a hot flash is it because of the Soma? Also is anyone getting like heart burn? Sometimes when I eat I get a burning sensation in my throat that wont go away. I have been drinking lots of milk to try to stop it and eating very bland food. Any subjections to these question will be greatly appreciated.
