I have been prescribed Flexeril & Motrin for severe neck pain. & shoulder pain It is not working.It helps for a little bit. Originally my dr. put me on 2 doses of flexeril5mg & 800mg motrin 2x daily. He also wanted me to go for an MRI which my insurance will not cover, I have other issues with my back that I deal with but this neck pain is horrible. My grown children have told me to call the dr and tell him how bad it is, well I did last week and he upped the dose to 3x daily. I have to wait until the 21 to see him, I do not think I can. My son told me to the hspital, but I need an okay from the dr. Is neck and shoulder pain this bad from a pulled muscle or pinched nerve ,? I have limited range of motion, I do not know how to deal with this pain. It feels like someone is pinching/tweezing my neck and flames racing up and down my arm. Should I call the dr?
