twitching suddenly 12 weeks post fusion?Help!

Tonight I started twitching. My legs. It's annoying as heck. Does this mean anything? Is it normal and part of healing nerves? It also is a foot or lower back, It's been going on for apx 5 hours. Thanks for ANY replies.

Re: twitching suddenly 12 weeks post fusion?Help!

is the twitching in your calf? i had the same problem prior to surgury.and now im 10 months out and it still does it..it seemed as though it was a big deal to my dr before surgury. but 6 months after my surgury my dr did not seem to worry about it..hmmm.for me anyway if i let it twitch very a long time i develop alot of pain in the area.so when it does start i will prop my legs up..just to avoid the pain i know will be there after letting it do it for any amout of time..not sure if this is the same thing your dealing with or not though..at times it looks like soemthing is crawling around my leg..kind or freaky looking..

Re: twitching suddenly 12 weeks post fusion?Help!

I don't if there is anything to see under my skin per say. It's like when you are falling asleep and you leg does an uncontrollable twitch and it startled you. It kind of alternated between my leg, just my foot, or my core, which felt.like my back. It seemed to go on apx every ten minutes and progress to every 1-2 minutes for a good 5 hours until I finally fell asleep. That was 3.5 hours ago, and I'm going to try and lay down and sleep some more and I'm curious to see if It's just when I am laying down sitting as I haven't noticed it walking but I just walked out of.bed to truck to drive son and Now back to bed. Thanks.for your reply. I read when I googled it others drs who didn't care like yours. I was hoping to.hear on here that It's a normal nerve behavior while healing and not Something "bad".

maybe you should speak to your dr and ask him. he would be the best source of information..my dr had said that my problem was from the nerves being compressed to long..he said it would just take time for the nerves to regenerate..thats why he was not concerned about it after my surgury..hope all goes well and you feel better..

I plan on asking him but was curious as I can't call him until Tuesday as he isn't in until then. Thanks for replies.
