I recently went through 2 major back surgery's for lumbar fusion of l4-l5. Since having the surgery the back pain has continued although not as bad, but the big problem now is leg jerks/spasms when I lay down or sit. I did not have the leg jerks prior to the surgery. Has anyone had this problem? I am seeing a pain management doctor and I am scheduled for a epidural injection to try to help with the pain and he started me on neurontin for the leg spasms, but that is not helping. I have gotten no explanation as to why I am having the leg spasms, or if the back surgery had anything to do with it, and exactly what is causing it. Is it a nerve problem, muscle problem, neurological problem. Help! I would love to here from anyone that has had this problem. :?
