Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Tramadol , tylenol (paracetamol) , ibuprofen , diclofenac all are not muscle relaxant ,but all these drugs are very potent pain killer .
Diazepam is a not a muscle relaxant , rather it is anti anxiety drug ( anxiolytic ) causes sedation ( causes sleep).
In my opinion you become addictive to diazepam .
At this condition If I were your treating doctor , I would come up with these measures for you , these includes.
1 Tablets baclofen + trypsin & chymotrypsin , this is a very good combination for muscle relaxation and most potent pain killer.
2 Use any muscle relaxant gel for massage , this will not only divert your attention from pain as well as provide relief in pain.
3 In my opinion consult a psychiatrist and get his opinion after every detail of disease . Now there is no any disease but a psychological effect of accident & trauma of that accident .
Good luck. Dr. HET
