Hi everyone

I had my operation in April 2013. I recovered well according to the neuro surgeon and only took pain meds for about 6 to 8 weeks post op. But due to the extreme damage to the pinched nerve (I was on the edge of being paralyzed) my right leg nerves did not recover 100%, although I took Lyrica to assist. Now I suffer from my right foot and leg getting tired more quickly and severe cramps and muscle spasms at night. It is so painful. Has anyone experienced this and what do you suggest I can do to help with the cramps / spasms. I cannot take anti-inflammatory meds because I am allergic to Voltaren, so I will have to stick with natural minerals/aids.
