Nocturnal calf cramps is a common complaint in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of baclofen in lumbar spinal stenosis patients receiving conservative therapy. We will compare pain score, insomnia severity, functional ability and patient satisfaction between control (conservative management for spinal stenosis) and baclofen group (conservative management for spinal stenosis plus baclofen treatment).
