  • The only new medication I started using was the Cyclobenzaprine prescribed by my doctor after I told her about my back pain on June 29 I noticed one red patch on my stomach area that looked like ringworm or something then a few days later I got more of them on my stomach, side and chest area it started to itch I called my doctors office and my regular doc was out of town I saw another doc in July who diagnosed the patches as eczema and prescribed some steroid cream,It puzzled me because I have never in my life deal with skin problems like eczema..The cream prescribes it seems to heal the sores n relieve some itching but now I am getting hives or some really itchy red bumps on the back of my legs and thighs I thought it was coming from a chair I always sit in so I check the chair I saw no bugs, fleas, mosquitos or anything but I have this intense itching at night and wake up with the rash spreading from one leg to the other I am starting to think its a side effect of the Cyclobenzaprine that was prescribed to me for my back pain?

    Responding to the post about cyclobenzaprine causing an itchy rash. This is nothing to chalk off! Discontinue the cyclobenzaprine and treat the rash!

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • Naprosyn, Vicodin, Ativan and Prilosec are taken only on an as needed basis. Some of my symptoms are intermittent, and some are chronic. The though the medications may not completely rid me of a symptom (for example, depression or muscle pain), they do improve my condition enough to warrant their continued use. I'm much better off taking them than not.

    The oral issues I'm having all began around the same time in the last year. I first noticed a sensitivity for spicy food I had never experienced. I can no longer use adult toothpaste because the minty flavors are so provinces as to cause pain. The gum irritation comes and goes as does the severity of the other oral pain I experience.

    My hair loss I can describe as severe as it can be without having visible bald spots. Whereas I once had unusually thick hair (a ponytail of around 1.5 inches), I have lost so much that my ponytail now measures about .5 inches.
