I have had 1 ESI done and 2 to 3 days after getting the injection in my low back on the left side, my left buttock went into total spasm. I had a hip injection, and at the time didn't make the connection, back in 2008.
After that injection my thigh muscle on the right side went into total spasm, my left soon followed. For 3 weeks I had to use a walker because whenever I tried to walk they would start to tighten and just get tighter if I continued to try and walk. Anyone ever have this type of reaction? I have talked to doctors about it. One said you can have a steroid flare up, but didn't really explain what that was. I had a neurosurgeon actually say my symptoms sounded like a strange neurologic disease, but he doubted that was the actual case. Thanks to anyone that can relate to this.
