Went to ER at about 2 a.m. with unrelenting back pain and spasms. Was given morphine, muscle relaxers, and hydrocodone before pain began to subside.
Was on bedrest in downstairs living room for 2-3 weeks. Took cyclobenzaprine and hydrocodone (on top of daily meds) during this time. Needed assistance to get up from bed and to use the bathroom for the first week.
During this time I was also having trouble swallowing. I assumed it was from the cyclobenzaprine but I began taking cyclobenzaprine at a later date on an everyday basis and have not had this problem swallowing, so now I assume it was not from the cyclobenzaprine.
I had a seizing of back spasms earlier in the summer of 2011 in the garden. I was ok within an hour.
