Chest pain, muscular: There are a few things that could be the cause although if it was clearly associated with the lifting then a pulled muscle is a good possibility. If you are having persistent chest pain with any exertion though, or pressure, nausea, tightness or shortness of breath it could be something else. Either way I'd just have urgent care take a quick look and maybe prescribe some physical therapy. ...Read more

Cautious with soma (carisoprodol): Soma (carisoprodol) is a muscle relaxant. I tend to be very cautious with Soma (carisoprodol) and have never prescribed it for back aches for two reasons 1) there are much better treatment modalities out there 2) it has substantial addiction and abuse potential. I might continue it if a patient's been on it for years and years from another doc, but will never use it as a first, second, or even third line medication. ...Read more

In some areas where abuse of carisoprodol is common (and it is one of the drugs that are "pushed" in pill mills (together with alprazolam/xanax) along with opioids. On routine 7 or 10 panel tests that look for opiates, benzos, cocaine, amphetamine, marijuana, barbiturates, PCP etc) it is NOT tested for. It is, however, a highly abusable and dangerous drug. ...Read more
