I am scheduled for my first ESI on March 12. I asked if he uses any kind of sedation and they said no. Is this normally done without any sedation? I don't have any pain meds to help me through (except some muscle relaxers) or even afterwards unless he gives me some that day. I've never met the doctor. I saw the NP. I'm not looking forward to this at all. Maybe if I dread it enough it will seem like nothing when the time comes? lol. I'd just like to know how many of you had the sedation or not? Thanks.
