From this study (3 months ago):
I suffer from severe to moderate memory loss a friend told me it was due to klonopin It has been 7 years though since I suffered a concussion in a car accident. Been trying to get disability forever. I can't even handle a minimum wage job bc the steps I have to take r instantly out of my brain. I have a masters degree. So I don't think it's the concussion I think it's the meds. The muscle relaxant r brand new so we can't blame them. So could it be the klonopin
From this study (5 months ago):
I have several bulging discs in neck from c4 through c7.Spinal stenosis, pinched nerves.I also have had numbness and tingling down right arm,although the discs/nerves are problematic on both sides of the neck.
I also have spasms in calves and toes that I haven"t told the doctor about yet.
From this study (4 years ago):
After taking Zanaflex for a month on a regualar schedule, drinking regularly I had an episode where I went to sleep and began having nightmares when I openned my eyes they continued and became hallucinations. I could not get up because I was so weak and my head and legs felt so tingly. When I got a up my head was spinning terribley and I was afraid I would faint. This continued the entire day when I would lay down and feel somewhat ok but when I got up my legs and head would tingle and spin. I am still feeling the affects and depression 2 days later.
