Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
I am on Remicade once a month since July 22nd of 2013. Had a great response until I hurt my low back again. Then the back pain just worked it's way right up my spine to the neck. I have had neck fusion one level...several bad discs. A knee replacement, a shoulder reconstruction etc. The numbness and tingling in my left hand and buzzing in my left ear are driving me nuts. A recent hearing exam showed I had nerve problems there as well. Don't know what to think. Had a brain MRI it showed normal. Now thinking a spinal tap in order?
From this study (7 months ago):
Was in 2 car accidents in Feb., 2012. Mechanic left part off car both times! I have multiple spine injuries but the cord irritation caused shingles to come out on my face. I cant have thoracic surgery till shingles is no longer active. I have numerous new symptoms like high cholesterol and skin fungal infection and distended stomach and autonomic dysreflexia. I have hard time initiating a urine stream and cant push very well to hav a bowel movement.
From this study (1 year ago):
Have taken the tizanidine before with the norco without the above listed adverse conditions. This is the first time I am taking all 3 drugs at the same time.
