wondering what causes this.....

So, I've been getting this new pain, new to me anyway. I've heard others describe it here before. It feels like someone is stabbing me with a hot needle, a BIG needle. I keep getting this right in the area where caudal injections are done and also a little lower on both sides of my bum. I've had this before once in a while but lately its been frequent. I was wondering if because of the location is it SI related or if it has to do with my disc herniations. Any one else had this pain in this location?


  • Yep, I had one last year. That caudal injection left me a very memorable feeling. It left a sharp and burning sensation that lasted days and days. I used cold / warm towel to ease my butt and I refused to move all day long. It was that painful for me, but eventually the pain went away after 2 weeks.
  • I had 3 ESIs, and each time I had what I called "ghost needle" pains. I kept feeling like I was being stabbed with the needle over and over again... It does go away, so don't lose hope!
