Tizanidine

Tizanidine

I took the Tizanidine for the first time last night 2/5/2022 and I woke up at 4:30 AM with what feels like very agitated/painful “nerves”. I was able to get great pain relief however I’m not totally sure how to describe the issue. I’m actually a bit confused if it is actually nerve pain or anxiety. It’s almost like restless leg syndrome but all over. Has anyone else ever had this reaction.

@ Rosemarie you need a new DR. Specially if your Dr. Thinks this is all in your head. Feel better. And praying for you to get help

Yes I get that feeling a lot. It is restlessness through your whole body. The tizanidine can help. When I get like that. I take baclofen, tremadol wrap myself up with my electric blanket and usually in about an hour it starts to ease up. I often take those 2 pills together. Seems to kick in a little quicker. Hope you feel better. But just another lovely symptom of fibro.

@A MyFibroTeam Member Yes, it is very common for doctors to label fibromyalgia as psychosomatic. I had to wait 5 months to get an appointment with my current rheumatologist who was referred to me by someone else with fibromyalgia. A good empathetic doctor is hard to find. Please keep up your search for a quality doctor. Don’t give up.

My gosh you people are so lucky to be able to be prescribed good medication! Here it’s so hard to even get a decent pain relief, take a Panadol? Doctors, especially young females from countries like Sri Lanka etc, seem to have been told to get as many people off medication! I had stomach ulcers start up again, she wouldn’t even give me tramadol? Ended up in hospital on morphine, which I should have been given by my doctor? This doctor thinks fibromyalgia is all in our heads? I’m trying to get another doctor, asap!
