I am hoping that I can get some help here. I was in a bus accident in Feb 09, I was rear ended while driving a school van by a young man who was going 50 mph and hit me while I was stopped. None the less I am in horrible pain, I began with neck and mid back pain. Thru therapy the neck got better, but the back got worse and migrated to my low back and now is down my buttock and leg. I have been in therapy since. I was diagnosed with herniated disc in neck and mid back and low back, with acute chronic pain of the L3 nerve root. I elected to try the epidural injections, I had them done weds last week, I am in more pain now then I was before! Now since the injections, I have the neck pain back and my neck pain was gone for a few months. So the pain is still in my mid back and low back,left buttocks and upper left leg. Are you supposed to get new pain after the injections? Please anyones advice would help me!
