I am not sure if this the right forum for my question but I will try! I am 37 weeks week pregnant with a baby who has complete heart block. My OB put me on Flexeril for some extreme groin pain I was experiencing. It just so happened that about 4 hours after taking the meds I had my weekly Echo with the Fetal cardiologist and a bunch of new issues were apparent on the Echo- I asked if the Flexeril was causing all the new issues and the cardiologist indicated that it was safe. I just can not imagine that in a weeks time so much could change with his Echo and it NOT be related to meds- When I google Flexeril and Heart Block there is SO much info warning not to take the meds if YOU have heart block- but NOTHING on its impact to a fetus with heart block. Anyone know anything?
