I am a 51 female suffering from severe pain due to C5-6 bulge with referred pain in shoulder, arm and shoulder blade. Dr wrote script for Norco, and Flexeril at first I had no problems with the Norco 3 x day and Flexeril at bedtime, but then it was suggested that I take the Flex, 3 x day - I started experiencing, increase in muscle spasms, dizziness, disoriented, short of breath, uneasiness, anxiety, panic, blurred vision, tremors. Then because of the side effects, the Dr suggested Zoloft for panic and anxiety, even though I was sure it was related to the medicine. The panic was over powering, disoriented, breathing issues, out of it feelings,tingling, numbness, constipated, this is awful.
