It has been a while since I last posted. I had a micro-d 2 years ago at l4-l5 and then ruptured my l3-l4 last August. I opted to not have surgery and try to manage pain with medication, but now I'm having intense muscle twitching in my lower left leg accompanied by tingling and numbness. I told my doc a couple weeks ago I'm ready for surgery and hopefully will have it within the next month or 2. However, this new symptom is really worrying me since I've never experienced anything like it before. I called my doc today to discuss but have yet to hear back. Has anyone else experienced these weird muscle twitching episodes? I can watch my calf and lower leg and it looks like there are critters under my skin moving around. It's nerve racking (no pun intended) and I'm not sure what to think about it.
