Age, side effects,,,: This could be from just age effects on your muscles, especially if you've used them a lot during your lifetime for housework or in your work. You're on two medications for muscle relaxation that could have side effects invoking your nervous system and ultimately your muscles, and they might ache afterwards. You therefore might think of seeing your doctor to get off the meds (except nsaids).
