Muscle Relaxers? Names Of Please?

Muscle Relaxers? Names Of Please?

I often see that people take these meds but don't know what the names of them are so I can ask the doctors if they would help me sleep without so much pain. If you take them please can you give me the name of the medication you take and if it helps. Thank you. X

Is This The New Normal?

Is This The New Normal?

I had C fusion in January. There was no communication from neurosurgeon that my pain wouldn't go away but simply change it's form.
