Opiates stop leg spasms not cause them

I have been having continuous spasms of mostly my legs since Feb 2012. Been to neurologist, Neuromuscular dr, had EMG (showing spasms) and sleep study for RLS (negative). Feel brushed off by everything. NM dr said I have l-carnitine deficiency and to take supplements and it will go away. Well up to 2000mg a day and no improvement. Here is my frustration. Had 2 abdominal surgeries this year May and November. Both times I was on opiates for pain med and muscle spasms completely gone.(since biggest complaint is spasms caused by opiates) No one can tell me why this us. "Especially" since since its not neuro muscular related. 3rd opinion appt in 2 weeks and been waiting 7 mths to get in.
