It's been 3 days since my lumbar ESI for L5/S1 nerve root impingement. The pain is not gone but is better, so I am encouraged. I am doing pretty well overall, but do have a few questions for others who have had this procedure....
How common is sleeplessness and how long does it last? (I haven't been able to sleep much or well since the injection.)
How long do the steroid flushes last? (Mine seem to be coming less often, but they sure are bothersome.)
Are weakness and mild nausea common after ESIs? (I feel almost like I have a mild virus but think it is just from the injection.)
