I've noticed that since I had my PLIF in June that this winter my feet, especially my toes are always freezing. I've never had this happen prior to my back surgery.
I do have nerve damage in my feet and have the constant numbness and tingling though.
Does anyone else have this problem? Even when I put socks on they're still freezing.
Also, I've been having alot of trouble sleeping. I've always had to take sleeping pills but even they're not working anymore plus my family doctor said she's not gonna refill my prescription anymore after this last bottle because she doesn't want me to get addicted! She's GOT to be kidding!!
Has anyway asked their spine surgeons for anything that helps? Flexeril doesnt work alone and I've been mixing it with Ambien right now to get some sleep. I heard Valium works. Is this true?
Thanks in advance for any advice,
