Question regarding Spinal Arachnoiditis

Spinal arachnoiditis at levels L5-S1 
Not sure what other levels. It was affecting just my left leg, but ever since I had vein laser done on my right leg, that side is hurting also. Very frustrating and severe leg spasms.

L5/S1 radicular pain caused by arachnoiditis will run along back of the thigh to feet and ankle. Laser surgery will cause local pain either secondary to muscle trauma of injury to vein.
