hi Sassy

I have a problem with jerking. Mine has nothing to do with surgery.

I started jerking and having tremors. My neurologist told me that they are 

seizures. He put me on mysoline. It has stopped my jerking and tremors.

I do not know how it is related to your surgery. I recommend you ask

your neurologist if the jerking increased your seizure activity. Also ask

him/her if you need medicine for it.

Hi SassyM.

I have not had surgery yet, but will  be having Left Temporal Lobe surgery on November 4th. If you want me to,  I can let you know how I feel afterwards. I hope everything went well!

Sassy,

Months after my RFL surgery while I was being weaned off Lyrica and Lexapro I'd get twitching in my legs at night while trying to fall asleep.  Thought maybe I had restless leg syndrome or ???  I didn't contact the doctor, thought I'd give it a few weeks until I was off my meds.  I think it was the medication withdrawl because I don't feel it anymore.  Never had any dizziness but was always careful not to over do it.  If you experience it throughout the day/night and are actually jerking, I'd call my neuro just to check it out; can't hurt any, that's what they're there for. 

Best Regards, Wendy

Hi Wendy

I have jerking in my arms and leges. I have tremors in my brain. I am on mysoline for it. Sinc you are having twitching in your legs, you should see your neuologist and ask him/her about it.

 

Your Freiend, Ruth

Re: Jerking after Surgery

I have had jerking in my legs.  I also had alot of migrane headaches never got dizzy though.

Re: Jerking after Surgery

I twitch and jerk all over my body, I had surgery about  four months ago, but this didn't start until they really upped my dosages of meds after my last series of t-c's.  And there is no charge in calling your neuro with questions, never hesitate if you have a question to call your neuro.
