hand/arm sensitivity/body spasms

It's been 15mos since my cervical fusion after being diagnosed w cervical myelopothy. My index fingers as well as the tops of both hands and arms has become increasingly more sensitive to touch of any kind. And for the past 3-5mos. I have been having body spasms that stiffen my entire body and locking my jaw. My worst night so far consisted of 7 spasms in a row w about 3-10 secs between ea one. This also causes me to lose urine uncontrollably each spasm. This happens any where from 1-3 times per week. They make my entire body so sore I am unable to get up or stand for about 10 mins. As it is my knees and legs hurt so badly while getting up too. But hurt the worst at night while laying down. I am currently on Norco 10/325. Gabapentin 300. Both taken 3 times a day and Tizanadine 4mg twice daily. None of these work except the Tizanadine. And it just makes me fall asleep for about four hrs. The Norco allows me to do this typing for about an hour and thats all. I have asked my drs repeatedly to be tested ect and med increase to no avail. Please if anyone has experienced this too n can explain what's happening to me. I also want to include I am unable to dress w/o help and legs are very weak. I can only walk in a store for about 15 mins. Thank you.

    You need to consiult a neurologist to determine if this is from spinal cord
    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.
