Charlie Horse in toes, left foot. Anyone?
I had a microdiscectomy/laminectomy in Jan. 2011 and again in June 2011 because the pain never really stopped after the first one although it did get much better. Now I have had an epidural injection under sedation which didn't nothing for me. This Friday they are doing an injection around the facet joints. He said there is minimal bone left and he thinks it's causing an unstable spine, hence spine pain. I have a damaged sciatic nerve as well. Left leg - chronic nerve pain, spasms in various areas of the leg. Now I'm having something that feels like a charlie horse in the toes on my left foot. Have any of you experienced this? I've read that it can be from everything going on with the spine/nerve. It's hurts and my toes bend in an upward position. Just wondering if I'm the only one. I injured my back in 2006 so I've been dealing with this a long while without having this weirdness in my toes...LOL. I let the injury go for so long, just treated the pain, inflammation and spasms about once every 3-4 months when I lifted something too heavy or pivoted just right. Had emergency surgery in Jan, then again in June. I'm really tired. I know that some have it much worse than me and I feel like a whiner. I'm just SO tired. I can't get out of bed in the morning without taking pain meds and Lyrica then wait for them to kick in. The neurosurgeon doesn't give me much hope for a 100%, pain free recovery. I have DDD, Osteopenia, Post Lumbar Laminectomy Syndrome and it seems like there's something else but I can't think of what it is. So...anyone else with weird toes??? LOL....Thanks!!
