After seven months of recovery from lumbar laminectomy and decompression, suddenly I wake up to a severy stinging sensation from my right hip to ankle.. If felt like a thousand wasps were stinging me all at the same time... Then, as quickly as it came on, my leg just relaxed and it went away... I am also suddenly having muscle spasms and charlie horses that I didn't have before.. I take Tylenol Arthritis and Gabopentin at night which helps me sleep for a few hours.. Is this part of the recovery process with nerves "awakening" or am I going backwards.. And, I was doing so well.. Anyone have a similar experience?
