What is the cause for tingling, muscle spasms in back, legs, arms and neck after lumbar fusion?

Lumbar fusion ( L-3 to L-5 ). Neck fusion ( C-3 to C-6 ). Both in 2011. March for neck. November for back. I am in more pain now than before. Had MRI with contrast dye on all ( 3 ) spinal section November 2012. All screws.rods.end plates look fine. So why do still have tingling, buzzing, muscle spasms, in my back, legs, arms and neck?

Although your bone is ok, but after surgery muscles remain weak and some time nerve also. Have you done physiotherapy because muscle strengthening is essential part of any spinal surgery and so is right postural guidance. Also take vitamin b 12, calcium and nutritive diet. Some time low calcium and vitamin B 12 is also cause of all these ailment.
