Upper Body Tremors: Hello. No previous history prior to fractures of upper body tremors? What did his MRIs show specifically of his neck? Did he have one of his thoracic spine? Do tremors involve arms AND chest (torso)? Is this the 1st time he has taken Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl)? Tremor can be seen with Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) but it is RARE. Tremors usually occur with overdose of Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl). Is he taking any narcotics too for pain control?
