Bit of background. I work in agriculture and have for the last 10 years or so.
In December I herniated my L4-L5 and had a MD on the right on Feb 17, 2020.
July 15th I started PT for lower back pain and weakness in my right leg with gait issues.
July 23 I my toes started to twitch when I did things like push on a brake or gas pedal.
July 29th my left leg began to spasm when seated.
July 30th both legs began to spasm while walking.
To now this has turned into feet pointed in, extreme leg spasms, walking on tip toes. \
Work relived me of duty on 8/4/2020 Until this is figured out.
Had an MRI of my lumbar spine which is fairly clean.
Met with the Neurosurgeon yesterday. Reflexes were 4+ on ankles and knees, noted extreme neurological issues with my leg, spasms, clonus.
They have pulled me from work and I can not currently drive. I have two MRIs coming up to look at my neck and upper back for spinal cord compression. Should these be neg, they will refer me to a neurologist.
These have come on rapidly and I have been going down hill really quickly. Motor nerves seem to be the only ones affected.
While I wait, does anyone have any clues on what I could be looking into?
