Resolved Question

What is a good muscle relaxant? I pulled a muscle or pinched a nerve in my neck!

My neck is very very sore, yesterday I pulled a file out the cabinet and all of a sudden I had the most excruciating pain in my neck and upper back (by my shoulder blade) I could hardly sleep last night because every time I wanted to turn over I was in so much pain. I tried rubbing deep heat on, soaked in a hot bath, got one of those hot microwave pillows and put it on my neck but nothing is helping. Even wearing a neck brace thing today. What can I take for this? Voltaren etc.. 46 mths ago

Best Answer

Voltaren GT50 or any of the generic ones. It mostly relieve the inflammation in the muscles as well. All that helps for me.

Sleep I would think; not on your back; sew a pocket on the back of an old T-shirt and put a tennis ball in it so you don't go roll on your back. Try it and tell if it worked please. Torticollis is what I thinke it is; if you turn your head slowly towards the way it hurts until your head is completely turned and turn it back now the other way and it hurts right away when when you start returning back to where you started it must be torticollis and I've had it 2-3-4 times and it goes away in around a week; deminishing slowly

Nurofen and Repirel Gel

The pills plus the Chinese Spray, which is a marvel. It is called Unan Baio but just ask for the Chinese Spray at any Dischem. It heals from within. Muscles, abrasions, wounds. There are two tins of this miracle spray inside the box. It is really a miracle.

A voltaren injection perhaps from your doc would bring the fastest relief?

dichlophlagm good for any damage to muscles and relaxes them and takes away the pain. Was on it for quite a while before I had my back op.

A firm but gentle message. Warm non-alcoholic drink. Couple of spasmends and a snooze.

Geez, we have some quakcs around here. Dr Spaltzhunds agrees with most answers though.
