I think it is something definitely biologic going on. I think it is only natural to get weak during or after that kind of pain. When that stuff starts for me, it's loritab time. Luckily, that doesn't happen that often. I got tired of suffering with pain for over 20 years now and wish I had asked for something for the pain way sooner. Plus, it helps the spasms for me much more than any anti-spasmodic I discovered, so no more symax or donnital for me. They didn't work very well at all anyway. Donnital worked better than anything but would dry me out something awful. My sinuses would bleed. Gumby, I hope you are done for a while with that pain. Good luck.
