I have neck an muscle spasm acutely. I have tried everything

Customer Question

I have neck an muscle spasm acutely. I have tried everything and need a muscle relaxant so I can go to work tomorrow as I’m a nurse
JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, how long have you been using the muscle relaxant? Has it helped at all?
Customer: I haven’t used for this problem. But have tried nsaids, codiene, massage
JA: Thanks for that. Have you used anything besides the muscle relaxant for this?
Customer: cocodamol 30/500 and iburophen yesterday with no relief
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Doctor should know?
Customer: no
