Extreme pain no relief with skelaxin
To be honest, I have not found a muscle relaxer that is really effective for rib spasms. I use Flexeril now, but have to take it every 6 hours. Even then I still have spasms. Is your pain caused by an injury? My pain is from surgery to remove 3 ribs for cancer and then reconstructive surgery to repair the damage done by the first surgery. Muscles were stretched from my chest and upper abdomen to cover the gap where the ribs used to be. Rib pain is miserable. Are you sure you have muscle spasms, or have you had testing to see if your intercostal nerves are causing your pain? If it is nerve pain, many people get relief from nerve blocks and ablation. I hope you find relief soon.
