I had my second Facet joint injection yesterday to determine if I am a candidate for the radiofrequency procedure. The first injection seemed to help with the nerve pain and back pain at least for a couple of days. I wasn't totally pain free but the pain level had decreased.
The injection yesterday hurt more than the first one and today I am experiencing more back pain than usual and nerve pain in one leg (verses both).
Is this normal? I am concerned that maybe the facet joint isn't the source of the pain now.
Has anyone had this type of experience with the diagnostic injections?
Thanks for any input!
