I am a 38 year old female with chronic tension headache like symptoms for about 5 years. I have been on Flexeril for about 4 years for the tightness and pain that I get in my shoulder blade muscles. It does not seem to be helping anymore. The tightness and pain are almost constant. I also take Vicoprofen for the pain, which also does not seem to be helping anymore. I am afraid to ask my doctor for new medications as she is very strict with Narcotics and such, but I need something to relieve the symptoms until I figure out what is causing the pain. I recently saw a Neurologist who prescribed Gabopentin but I have only been on that for about a week and see no difference. I was just wondering what other muscle relaxers are out there and what kind of success others have had with them. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
