Hi Barbsm,
Thanks for writing our query.

It will be helpful if you write the names of the muscle relaxants you have already taken.

I would suggest that you should get an X-Ray of your neck to rule out the possibility of cervical spondylosis.

Also add a pain killer like Ibuprofen one tablet twice a day after meals along with an antacid like Omeprazole 20 mg along with the muscle relaxant.

I hope this is helpful to you.
