Janice..you said most of what I was thinking
I know, as a personal experience, that Flexeril makes me very tired and once I do fall asleep I sleep for a while. That could be a good thing too when dealing with head pain, it is relaxing and lets your body "reset"
I would take the medication and take note of how you feel before and after. With a migraine a lot of things are challenging and at times bending over, coughing, physical activity etc and increase the pain...make sure you tell your doctor that!!!
I hope you feel better SOON!
Keep us posted and let us know whether you decide to take the muscle relaxer.

Sara, I'm sorry to hear that! I've just been diagnosed with early stage breast cancer, but it's early and treatable.
Are we talking cervical? I'm a lot older than you (53) so the procedures they did for that back then are probably vastly different than what they do now. How old is the baby and did you have some help? What did your final pathology report say, did they get everything?
Ok, I've gone on long enough, haven't I...I hope you're okay!
I am glad it gave you some time to relax, I hope that it helped with the pain also! ...awaiting your response
