Leg & Foot Spasms (Nerve Damage)
Hello...I had back surgery in 2004 for a bulging disc L1,S5. Since my surgery I have numbness down my left back leg, from buttock to toes. I continue to have spasms down my back leg and foot.  These cramps are very painful & are now coming very frequently. I had a nerve block shot a few weeks ago & nothing has changed. I have been prescribed all the muscle relaxers on the market. Nothing seems to help me.  I'm also experiencing muscle or nerve movements (twitches) throughout the day & night.  All in all I'm up at least 6 times a night walking off painful muscle cramps.  I'm now going through my 3rd bought of PT.  I have seen 2 Neurologist, 1 Pain Mgt Doctor, Physical Therapist & my regular doctor.

Can anyone help me?

I have the same exact experience following L4-S1 fusion in 2006 and it is more frequent and more severe as of late.  I am more concerned becasue recently I have begun experiencing this in my right leg as well.

Did you receive any response to your posting?  I am seeking help!!
