    I would reccomend you speaking to your doctor about about RSD / CRPS. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy. You can do some research on it. After my first spinal fusion I had a lot of leg pain and symptoms and was diagnosed with it. Many people do not think of it and it ends up being that. It is a result of trauma or injury to a nerve. There is treatment. Luckily the surgeon who was doing my second fusion paid attention to my symptoms when I was at a point I couldn't walk and was always in bed and in a wheelchair. You can see a specialist and get a test and if you have it there are a series of injections that can give you relief among other things. But it is a step I hope this is a step in a right direction. Best of luck to you you're not alone. Stay positive.
