I have an odd question. I have recently hurt my back and had a shot if toradol with Advil that seem to weaken my entire back. I have recent ate many dried cranberries,any hand fulls. I can tell that my entire body is reacting. I have a feeling everything is drying up. My neck, hands and back. I have diarrhea. A normal person would not react but with my recent problems I think I have done something. I was taking Advil and putting aspircream on. Now I can see changes happening. Just concerned. I am probably dehydrate now.. Can you advise.

Brief Answer:
Stop Toradol get physician referral

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
Toradol and Advil should not have been taken together because they increase adverse effects of each other like gastritis, loose motions, vomitting, uneasiness. But the weakness in back is not the feature of this treatment and you should get a physical examination by a local physician to evaluate this finding because it can be due to serious underlying injury that may warrant investigation.
The Toradol should not be taken beyond 5 days and more than 40mg per day.
The use of cranberry is not of any clinical importance and is not a cause for the current problems.
Applying lock painkillers is safe and should be continued.
You can use a combination of tramadol and paracetamol which is safe and quite effective after you consult your physician.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.

I have also not been able to sit because my sit muscle have not been working at all. I had an MRI two months ago if my neck. That was right before the tordal. The miri showed my c3-5 had problems. But, it wasn't bad before the toradal. It seemed to weaken everything and then I had the MRI. Will this injury get better and what can I do. I call my doctor every week since about the weakening muscle and not being able to sit. Should I go to chiropractor, rehab, or myofacial, acupuncture. I need help. I stand all day and night. Can this get better.

Brief Answer:
neurologist referral is necessary at earliest

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back to health care magic.
The symptoms of the stiffness and weakness in the whole back is not compatible with the diagnosis of C-4,5,6 MRI findings.
Involvement of these segment of spine can cause weakness in the upper limbs but not in the back or in the lower limbs. So it is highly advisable that you get yourself examined by a physician or a neurologist of your locality. It is not right time to go for a chiropractor or a acupuncturist till the extent of your problem is known.
I hope the advice will be helpful for you.
