I've posted in another board about having pain in the sacrum area of my back. Things are going on that I've never had before and was wondering if anyone else has had this or not.
First, I've had a L4-S1 ALIF Fusion in 2007. Osteoarthritis along with other DDD have set in and continually take oral meds and get routine facet joint injections. Recently, I've been having more pain the sacrum area and my PM thinks it's sciatica. But when I lay flat on my back in bed, my lower back begins throbbing and I have to reposition. The last few nights, I've been getting horrible Charlie Horses in my calf muscles in the middle of the night. I've woken up screaming from the pain twice. Last night I was able to keep from screaming, but the pain was still intense. I've never had this issue before.
Has anyone else had this? I don't think my calcium or potassium is out of whack since I feel ok otherwise. This is really weird.
