I'm new to this forum and hope I can get some clues from this community.
I will get these weird spasms like my right calf is about to lock up in a painful cramp (but doesn't) when I'm sitting in a regular position. If I lift my legs up (so my back and legs look like an 90 degree angle) the spasms kind of fade away. I don't get them as much when moving around either. But once I lay in bed sometimes, they prevent me from falling asleep or if I wake up in the middle of the night to use the toilet, then I might never get back to sleep. Very annoying.
I had an hernia around L4 a couple years ago and had to go back to the chiro every now and then but since this summer, it's been more about those spasms than outright lower back pain. I think I caused the herniation back then by lifting something heavy (many times) and hyper extending backwards to support the weight, so the back of the discs perhaps got too much pressure.
I do not have any lower back pain at the moment, although yesterday the chiro said I needed a slight adjustment, which he performed.
Anyone get these symptoms and relieves ?
