Good evening all,
Just looking for some insight, I had a microdisectomy with nerve decompression L5-S1 last march- as I had a HUGE ruptured disc that made my life hell aka the sciatica. Surgery has been the best thing ever to happen, as I got my life back. I am now in the nursing profession which is the worst job when you have back problems but its something I love so I will not give it up. However only lately ive been getting extreme pain in the area like spasms when getting up from laying down, mostly from sleeping. I know that you get stiff in the morning as you don't really move much in your sleep but as soon as i lay down or sit down and relax I get this awful spasmy pain. I am in the gym alot and I did find stregthening my back and core has helped so I am going to do the same again, but simple things like getting up from a chair or bed I get this pain and then I am alright and get no pain? Has anybody had this? I haven't been to the doctors, I am trying to put it off as long as I can.
