Brief Answer: Due to the tense shoulder muscle Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. It could be due to the tense shoulder muscle. Tense muscle becomes too short and upon pressure compresses superficial nerve fibres. This might be the cause of tingling in your case. When you turn to opposite side, pressure releases and tingling goes away. I suggest you to do muscle stretching exercises to relieve the muscle spasm and thus pressure over nerve fibres. Doing hot fomentation and applying muscle relaxant gel will be helpful. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care

I am currently on cyclobenzaprine with a prescription. I take it at nighttime right before bed to help me sleep better due to I have a muscle strain that s also affecting my sciatic nerve. I am off work right now, but when I go back would I still be able to take this pill at night and operate under my cdl the next day. Would this drug show up on a dot drug test if I was pulled in for a random or god forbid an accident.

I have pain in my left upper arm. There is some pain in upper spine also. Seen doctors several times.

Need some advice.

Six months ago, I was dancing (I know it is isn t a sport, but my injury is close), and I was doing a full split while I slipped and split fully and too fast. Since then, on my left leg, I have been experiencing pain whenever I stretch . This pain is localised to one long line from my groin to mid-thigh, on the inner side of the leg. I would like to know if the injury is serious, what type of doctor I should consult, and if muscle relaxants (like Moov and Volini) will help, along with hot and cold foamentation and wrapping the injured area with a crepe bandage .
