I'm two years post tlif at l5/s1 level. I've experienced cramps in my left foot and toes, like a charlie horse, before but the problem has increased in the last week. Tonight I'm having that nagging nerve pain in my left butt cheek and hip plus lower back pain which I haven't had in a year. I've been off pain meds for a year and I don't want to take it ever again. Have any of you experienced this and what did they do to help you? Thanks in advance. I'm freaking out a little.
