Muscle Relaxers? Names Of Please?
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

What Symptoms Constitute A ‘flare’?
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I was diagnosed in 2016 with peripheral spondyloarthritis. My symptoms were mainly in my shoulders, knees, Achilles and fingers/toes

Does Anyone On Here Have Arachnoiditis?
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone on here have Arachnoiditis, I was diagnosed with it 16 years ago, and I am in torment. I am now on 647mcg. Intrathecal Fentanyl pump therapy, 2 oxycontin, 2 cymbalta, 2 lyrica, and 2 diclofenac, and it only shaves the edge off the pain at best.

Does anyone have any suggestions that might help?

I am trying acupuncture next as I hear it sometimes helps.

Thanks I advance,
Rick Lillard

I relate to your pain but the only thing that's really helped is acupuncture and a deep back massage. Preferably Thai massage as it doesn't leave me in agony for a week afterwards.

The only one not tried yet is Otezla and due to some of the other meds, I am on I am not able to take it. I am at a loss and I am hurting too badly to even function.😭
