I am a 32 yr old female, i started to have severe lower back pain which radiates through both of my legs, around a yr ago. i had MRI and it showes the disc around my L5-S1. i had a SI joint injection (blinded, not through fluoroscopy) b/c i have a severe pain at SI joint as well, and it caused my back muscles severe spasm that caused me to go to ER. The muscle pain is gone but i am still suffering from the nerve pain. my doctor recommended me to get epidural injection for L5,S1 and SI joint but i am kinda affraid of getting that severe severe muscle spasm after it. I was just wondering if any one here experienced the same thing or if u guys know any solution to it.
P.S. i was wondering if any of u guys have a job which requires standing up and if yes how do u deal with it? does ur supervisor allow u to sit b/c u have special situation?
