So I just had my first nerve blocks done on my lower back this morning. Normally, my lower back hurts when I stand/sit or do anything really but laying down gives relief, and bending over, while still kind of painful, does give relief in some way. It relieves the pressure I guess. Anyways, the blocks have worked great so far (2 hours, lol) I can stand and sit with no pain! However, now, to bend over is so incredibly painful! Is that normal?
He was also poking around before the shots, maybe that's why. He was pressing where the SI joint is, and I just about went through the roof every time he pressed on that area. We already know I have issues with my facet joints (in both my neck and now my back) and he figures the SI joint is now getting out of whack (my words not his, lol)
