As most of you know, I had L4/5 Fusion in November 2009. So, I am at "the critical" 6 month point. After many stops and starts, I am back to work this week. It was a short week fortunately, and a holiday coming so another short week. I have been very aggressive with PT in the last 2 months. I am having really brutal muscle spasms. I assume that's what they are. I had one earlier this evening bring me to tears. These are occuring while I am standing. I have a sit-stand work station. Last night and today, these spasms almost had me on the floor. They start in my rt buttocks and into the hamstring. I have been taking flexeril forever. 3 times a day 10mg.
I do see my PM this week. My surgeon gave me a steroid injection directly into the hip last week. I am at a loss. Maybe the flexiril is not effective anymore? Any ideas?
Best And Hugs all around!!
