I had a very rough day today. The pain started at 3 AM. I tried not taking anything because I needed to be some where today. But when I rolled over at 6:30 AM, I couldn’t take the pain and needed to take my meds. It was a pain like I haven’t had in quite some time! It was widespread pain. My arms, legs, back, and neck were killing me. It was awful!
My doctor gave me a new medicine called Baclofen. It’s another muscle relaxant. It is stronger than Flexeril. My insurance company said they were not going to insure the Flexeril any longer. I was very nervous because it was helping with my pain. But my doctor gave me some samples of Baclofen to try. It works. It does appear to be stronger. So I can now begin using it for my pain, along with my other basket full of meds by my bed.
