Hi SB,

Car accident quite a while ago but sounds like meds are still in use. Damaged nerves and discs c6/c7, did 3 rounds of physical therapy. One visit chiro, 3 spinal blocks (ouch). Btw-let the insurance company know about numbness in foot. Thats not good. They should be covering this.

Physical therapy does help. I was referred to neuro when pain didn't leave. He prescribed Klonopin, which REALLY does work on nerve pain. 25 steroid shots were worthless.

For relax/pain, several people recommended Soma and baclofen but my Dr.(GP) wouldn't prescribe them. I didn't ask why. I was getting migraine type headaches. So for pain, Doc prescribed any of these depending what I wanted:

Ultram/Tramadol
Vicoprofen/Hydrocodone
Toradol-(non-narcotic but best pain relief. You can only use for few days at a time tho, tears up your stomach)

Klonopin for nerve pain (works well for that)

I'd try Baclofen if Doc will prescribe.

I worked with someone at the Gym and my headaches went away. Just don't work anything where you are lifting your arms above your chest,
and don't bend your head backwards.

You probably know most of this, but if I can prevent an ounce of pain....haha, good luck.
