Jumping muscle

Posted , 3 users are following.

When trying to sleep I have been experiencing an involuntary 'jumping' of the muscle on the left side of my knee. I did have this initially after my tkr whilst in hospital but it subsided until recently (4 weeks post tkr). Has anyone else experienced this and any suggestions as to why or how to stop this happening?

    Its just another of those crazy things the body goes through during the healing process. Some nerve has decided to react to the new and additional activity. Don't be surprised if it pops up again a few weeks from now. It could be you are not walking with a limp or favoring the pre op pain. The 3rd time I went through this one of those night time things came back 3 months later and lasted 3 or 4 nights and disappeared
