I was diagnosed with 2 herniated discs a couple of years ago, and was prescribed the generic form of Flexoril to use during the muscle spasms I sometimes get. I went to a FNP for the first time and was told that she would not continue this treatment. She prescribed Diclofenac Sodium DR 75 mg. Doesn t do anything for me, except give me a headache. Told her this does not work for me. Told me again she would not continue the muscle relaxer prescription. I used 800mg Ibuprofen to try to alleviate my occasional back pain and spasms ( along with the arthritis in my knees... Had my right knee scoped almost 2 years ago, found the arthrits) now pain during moist weather NOW she won t even refill my 800mg Ibuprofen. Tells me she ll prescribe the Diclofenac Sodium DR 75 mg again, but no Ibuprofen or muscle relaxer. I ve NEVER asked for narcotic pain meds, and don t want those, but can t understand why she refuses to continue the medication that actually worked for me. Seriously considering filing a complaint against her because I m tired of having spasms in my back and severe pain in my knees and her trying to give me medicine that does nothing for me. Should I file a complaint?
