I was recently prescribed carisoprodol (Soma) and I just wanted to know what kind of side effects I can expect from it.
Please don’t tell me the effects from the drug from some website. I can search for it myself. I want to hear from people who have personally taken this drug. Thank you!
I haven’t taken Soma myself but the link below has reviews/comments from several users. Hope it helps.

I have bad muscle pain in my ankle/muscle in front, by shin, it hurts so much when i walk, i started when i was in russia, i walked a lot, and i mean a lot, for few days, now i am putting on ice and taking ibuprofen, how long does it take for this type of muscle pain to heal? anything else i can do?
You have shin splints. Muscles down there are torn and damaged. See a Doc to be sure.

I think I pulled a muscle in my back deadlifting a few days ago and all I have is excedrin migraine. It says it has acetaminophen 250mg and aspirin 250mg. Would it help the pain or no?

I went paintballing with my friends on Sunday (first time too, ’twas awesome), and I also did some running that would be considered extreme exercise for me, since I never get out of the house except for school. So why do the muscles in my thighs feel like all hell when I bend my legs? Something to do with lactic acid or something…
So what’s the problem and how do I get rid of the pain
Any time you do a lot of physical activity that your body isn’t used to, there will be muscle soreness after. You’re muscles are damaged and your body is repairing them (which is the basic concept of weight lifting; tear muscles and build them back bigger than before). Only time (usually a day or two) will get rid of the soreness.

If i rub deep heat into my thighs and calves, will i still feel the muscle pain while i am exercising?
Probably. This is because the pain is probably caused by working out too hard. You should try to keep your heart rate under 180 beats per minute as you work out. This makes sure proper amounts of oxygen get to your muscles, and lowers lactic acid buildup in the muscles, which is what causes the “burning” feeling after working out hard.

i was traing for cross-coutnry today. and now i have muscle pains all in my legs, and up to the side of my butt.
but i do not want to take any pills. but what are the faster ways? or just simple things that i can do to help?
Hydrate, it is the build up of lactic acid, that causes muscle pains/cramps….hydration is the best way, when I ran cc over 20 yrs ago, always hydrated after a meet…

I recently popped a pimple on my shoulder, and now have deep muscle pain. The pimple has looked the same the last 2 days, very small. There have been MRSA outbreaks in the area. Should I be worried? How long would it take to see a change in the pimple?
please go to see a doctor.

I just started exercising again and some of my muscles are pretty sore. Should I rest until the pain subsides or should I just exercise through it?
YES! The pain in your muscles is a result of tearing. This is exactly what you want to happen, because you get the bigger muscles after it rebuilds and heals. But if you continue to exercises through it, it can cause permanent damage
