had back surgery 1 month ago, now having body shakes, is this normal?


  • Welcome to Spine Health. What type of surgery did you have? Do you have any other symptoms? What brings on the shakes? How long does it last?

  • would definitely call my doc tomorrow and tell him. I haven't heard of shakes a month out, but it might be nothing. Just check to be sure.

  • Hiya >:D< Welcome To Spine Health :D to add onto what haglandc and cheri have asked, are you taking any medication? If so what are you taking! :?

  • I thought I was the only one. About 2-3 months after my surgery, my husband said I was having "twitching" in my upper body while sleeping. One twitch every 30 seconds for 1-5 minutes. They didn't wake me up. No doctor had an explanation for them, but they all said they weren't serious if I was asleep. After I went off Cymbalta, they went away, so either it was a coincidence or there was a connection. I'll probably never know. It's certainly not listed in the Cymbalta side-effects.
