  • So, about two weeks ago, I went into my Doctor's office complaining of pain in my right side and lower back, which was radiating all down my leg and through my abdomen on the right side, and at first, because the pain seemed localized on the right side I thought it was a kidney infection, but all the tests came back negative for any time of infection at all
  • The first time I took it was on an empty stomach, and though there are no directions stating you should take it on a full stomach, I would recommend it, because I did get a little nauseous but it seemed only that one time

      So, about two weeks ago, I went into my Doctor’s office complaining of pain in my right side and lower back, which was radiating all down my leg and through my abdomen on the right side, and at first, because the pain seemed localized on the right side I thought it was a kidney infection, but all the tests came back negative for any time of infection at all. I’d been to see my doctor a number of times thanks to problems in my back and it turns out that muscular problems can result in pain that radiates all around the abdominal area, including the sides, and also down the leg. She suspect sciatic or something along those lines, but took some xrays to be on the safe side, and they turned out to be totally fine. She was hesitant to prescribe me anything (one of those

      holistic type of doctors) but I requested until I was blue in the face something more adequate than motrin for the pain and general discomfort I was feeling. I needed something on the Kroger Generic $4 or $10 prescription list because I have no insurance that covers scripts, and she ended up prescribing me flexeril, which I’d never had before. I had taken a couple other “light weight” muscle relaxers, and my doctor tried to tell me I might be a little woozy and uncoordinated with these, but I was in so much pain that I really didn’t care at that point. Motrin didn’t cut it in the least and, let’s be frank here, I didn’t need an expensive doctor appointment if motrin was sufficient, right?

      So I started taking the flexeril, and they actually were NOT strong enough to make me woozy or unable to function ...


      • or operate heavy machinery. They are a muscle relaxer that blocks nerve reciptors in the brain, so it’s like you don’t even register pain associated with nerve or muscular damage, which is right along with my symptoms, so I was hoping it would work pretty well. And it does. The first time I took it was on an empty stomach, and though there are no directions stating you should take it on a full stomach, I would recommend it, because I did get a little nauseous but it seemed only that one time. Once I took it with a meal after that, then I was totally fine and didn’t seem to have much of a negative reaction at all. It took about twenty minutes to kick in, and though I did feel it start to work by getting a bit of a light-headed feeling, it didn’t make
        me sleepy or uncoordinated like the doctor kept stressing. I’m glad I didn’t listen to her and kept insisting she prescribe me some.

        So far, they have worked wonders to help alleviate some of the pain and discomfort I’ve been experiencing. I mostly only needed it at night, and since I work during the day didn’t want to take it anyway in case I’d be out driving around. Better safe than sorry, after all, and I can finally sleep again. I was so uncomfortable the first couple nights before going to the doctor that I’d just sit in bed and cry because of it. But now I can get to sleep and stay asleep and I don’t wake up feeling drugged out or sore from heavy sleeping. I really recommend talking to your doctor about this medication if you are experiencing similar problems to mine, because it’s been wonderful.
