Had my first injection today. Pain clinic Doc said my pain SEEMS to stem from super tight muscles on the side of my spine and my right hip is higher. His plan was to treat assuming my pain is muscle related and if it didn't work to treat for the disc.
Fast forward to today, had the steroid injection. I told him meds don't hit me the way they do normal people, I have had two experiences of anesthesia NOT working. He assured me I would have enough Versaid (sp?) and Fentanol (sp?). Surprise surprise I was in horrible pain and I remember everything :-(
So my question is this - the pain I had DURING the injection was in the back of my leg, not my back. It burned, was hot and HURT like the dickens. Is this normal and does it help me pinpoint what is causing my pain? Right now my pain is worse than it has been in a long time and the only meds I have are T4 which barely do anything :-(
