difference between nerve pain/muscle pain?
I am 2 months post-op from a laminectomy, discectomy, and fusion L5 S1. I am basically doing really good, except I have been getting these awful shooting pains in the thigh I had the worse sciatica. I still have some of the sciatic thigh pain when I sit too long, but doesn't it take the nerves a while to realize they are not pinched anymore? Also, can these shooting pains be muscle cramps? They are quick, don't last, and very intense.
I know there are so many of you that have been through this, so any stories would be really appreciated!
