Extremity Pain After Craniotomy/Meningioma
In April of 2012, I had partial removal of a left sphenoid wing meningioma.  During the surgery I suffered a mild stroke.  I spent 16 days in a rehab facility for PT, OT, and speech therapy.  In June I began experiencing aches in my upper and lower extremities, ankles, wrists.  It rarely effects the arms.  It's mostly the legs.  The aches seem to be bad after some type of manual stimulation or even after a shower.  I use a shower char and sometimes during a shower as the water hit my legs I could feel some slight muscle spasms.  There isn't any swelling, nor does it feel warm to touch.  Usually the pain isn't immediate after stimulation.  I usually don't feel it until I wake up after a sleep. I usually take motrin to ease the feeling.  During the day, I don't feel the aching.  I usually walk a few times throughout the day.  Again the aching only seems to magnify after rubbing my legs or after a shower.  Is this common after brain surgery or stroke?  What could be causing it?  Is there anything that can relieve it?
