had the trigger point injections

I had the trigger point injections done yesterday. I woke up with the left side of my neck really tight. I hope this loosens my muscles. I iced and took ibeprofen all night last night.

Of course my Dr said that most of the muscle spasms where self induced. He said that I am so stressed out even obsesses about my neck that I am causing them. I was just waiting for him so say something like that.

Well time will tell.

  • I've had 6 weeks in a row trigger point inj. and also with my past epis. I must say my back is feeling alot better. I hope you get some relief. I'm not sure if the muscle spasms are self induced, not intentionally anyway. We tense up because of referred pain from the bulge or herniation. Take care. Charry

  • I am going back in 4 weeks. I really hope this works. How and when do you become a surgical canidate? If you can't work, walk, or sit down how aren't you a surgical canidate? I just don't understand this at all. I hope you get better.

  • It's been 9 months I've been off work in pain. I go for 2nd ortho referral in late January. I feel my Dr. really didn't have the connections to send me anywhere. My referral was faxed to a closed clinic and sat there 2 months now my appt. is in January. If surgery is offered I'm going for it if these injections don't work. I hear an anular tear can heal within 18 months, I have 24 months before I lose my job. Maybe I'll wait. How long have you had your pain? Take care. Charry

  • I have had pain muscle mostly since July 23, 2007. The injections seems to have relaxed some of my muscles but time will tell. I just started to get bad nerve pains in my right palm. I would take surgery also. And I will when I get worse.
    Is most of your pain is in your lower back?

  • Yes the pain is mostly in my back. I'm getting epidurals for the leg pain and at the same time he does the trigger point injections. It's nice to get up off the stretcher and have no pain but it comes back soon afterwards. Hope the next one will take it away. Charry
