Question: I have had roughly five hours of sex and sniffed on poppers a couple of times during that time. It was my second time (trying poppers) and I wasn't aware of the drug or its side effects. It has been 48 hours almost and I'm unable to sleep right. Barely sleep like an hour or so. Last morning, right after the whole night of sex and poppers, I had vomiting sensations, heavy breathing, dizziness, extreme body pain (sore feeling in every muscle). Everything is fine now to an extent, but I'm unable to sleep. Please advise what can I do to get over the weakness and sleep normally. Thanks.

Brief Answer: Possible side effects of inhaling poppers... Detailed Answer: Hi, What you are experiencing is related to the common side effects of sniffing on poppers. So, I'd suggest to keep away from using poppers, drink plenty of water, take chamomile tea (a couple of cups) and get physically involved (work or exercise). At the moment, this is all you can do until the effect of poppers will go and you can assume you normal sleeping. Hope it helped.

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.

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 .
