2 years ago i went to Rheumatologist because I couldn"t stand walking or standing on my feet,she told me that when you don't sleep well at night that your nerves become hypersensitive. She gave me Flexeril to help me sleep and to relax the muscles in my feet and low and behold the pain disappeared,now the only time i get the pain in my feet is when i have not gotten enough quality sleep.
Your body needs rest and your muscles which were active during day time would need time to be starting to work out. For any average individual with mild physical work anything of 6-7 hours of sleep is essential.Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) is a muscle relaxant. Take care!
Did the doctor tell you anything about this condition? Is there anything I can read on it? I'm dead scared to get a cortisone shot. I once was on the bench and the doctor pulled out the needle and I went into phobic shock. Is there any way possible to do it while I'm sedated or sleeping?
Mainly, is there any name for this.. Anything I can read up on?
