Crazy Spasms in Right Leg and Right Arm... Read on...
I had Spinal Fusion/ Instrumentation surgery about 6 months ago on my L5/L6 and I was very close (as my doc described AFTER my surgery) to being paralyzed. I had/have numbness in my leg and nearly could not walk. Surgery is done and so is Therapy. Walking better, still have a bad limp, but I have been told that time and exercise will help with that. BUT...
In my right leg and often my right hand... I get a very odd spams/tremble when I get up from resting/sitting/laying down. The best way I can describe the feeling is as follows: Imagine when you get up in the morning and have your first stretch... It is a fairly powerful feeling that kind of seizes your body for a moment. Lock on to that "Stretch" feeling. That is the overwhelming feeling I get in my leg every time I get up from a relaxed position only It's WAY more intense than the morning stretch and completely involuntary. Sometimes, when I get up, I have to stand still for a moment before I can walk.
Sometimes this comes along with a tremble in my leg and right hand.
It is not necessarily painful. It is, however, extremely uncomfortable and debilitating when it happens. I am not really taking anything for pain at the moment. Some Tylenol Naproxen when I feel the need.
I have seen different postings on spasms and such, but I never see a description that matches exactly my symptoms.
So, As I have described it above, has anyone else experienced this? Did you find a way to alleviate and or get rid of these "spasms"??
Thanks for any replies. I am slowly getting better... Now I want to get well.
