Last nite I woke up several times with my body shaking ( not  cramping). I have sleep apnea but was using machine- don't think it was related. I finally remembered a prescription for muscle spasms and took one. Then woke up to familiar nerve pain in the rear. Are my nerves just freaking out? Likely I have reinjured?

    It is not unusual for these kinds of things to happen during recovery.  You will probably have spasms come and go.

    As always, if you have serious concerns contact your surgeon's office.
