Back pain on exhaling, no pain on inhaling. Taking flexeril for neck pain. Causes for symptoms?

Hello, I keep getting a sharp crushing pain in my back ONLY when I exhale completely. It doesnt hurt when inhaling or breathing shallow. I am 28 years old. I went to doctor a week ago because I was having neck pain , (Dr. thought it was pulled muscle) and I was prescibed Flexeril and an anti inflammatory. Could this be a side effect or something completely different?

Hello, pain cannot be a side effect of anti inflammatory or flexeril. Your crushing pain in the back could also be due to pulled muscle. Rest for couple of days, do not strain, continue flexeril for total duration of 5 days, and you can apply a analgesic gel to your back but no massage. Take care.
