I have severe muscle pain, side effects from oxazepam, & trazadone that I am now trying to wein off. I take effexor 37.5mg & tyl 3? My muscles are so sore, I can't move.

Everyone has experienced sore muscles from time to time. Sore muscles may be caused by a variety of reasons, the most common cause is overexertion. Overexertion may be caused by any kind of strenuous activity the most common being over exercising.

Chronic muscle pain on the other hand is a different matter. Chronic muscle pain is that which lasts for a long time. If you suffer from chronic muscle pain you should consult a doctor who will be able to diagnose the underlying cause.

Some of the more serious causes of muscle pain include:
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Lyme disease
  • Lupus
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle strain or rupture
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Rhabdomyolysis
  • Staph infections
  • Viral infections
  • Side effect of certain medications
There are a few home remedies that you can try that will bring you relief from muscle soreness and pain.

Applying an ice pack to the affected areas can help relieve muscle soreness. If you do not have an ice pack handy, anything that is frozen will do including a bag of frozen peas. This will also help to reduce any swelling present. Apply the ice pack for about 20 minutes, 3 to 4 times a day.
If ice fails do not provide any relief you can try switching to heat by using a hot water bottle or a heating pad. However, heat should not be applied if there is any swelling.

Another home remedy is to use an elastic bandage and wrap the affected muscle with it. The bandage will have to be tied firmly but not so tight that it results in a swelling. The bandage will have to be cleaned regularly and replaced when necessary. This remedy will help to reduce swelling and promote healing.

If possible, try elevating the sore muscle by placing a few pillows under it. The affected muscle should also not be strained any further. Elevation allows the swelling to subside and will help reduce pain.

Periodic stretching of the affected muscle will help to prevent cramping or tightening of the muscle. This should only be attempted if it does not induce further pain. If the soreness tends to lessen when you gently stretch the muscle then continue to do so. Stretch a few times in a day but do not overdo it.

Consult your doctor if the soreness or pain increases or does not subside within a few days.
