I got diagnosed with DDD 2 years ago after a fall I had. About a week ago I got an Epidural steroid injection in my neck. During the procedure, I heard a crunching sound. It was one of the most painful experiences in my life. My question is...What was the crunching sound and when should I expect to have pain relief? I feel more pain now than before the procedure.


  • Hi

    First let me say welcome to spine-health. Look around the neck forum and you will find many whom have had epidural injections. AS far as the crunching sound you heard when they placed the injection, I am sure no one here would really know what it was. But I would ask the person whom did the injection why that noise occurred. As far as relief from the injection, typically it is fully active by the 7th day post injection. It isn't uncommon to have more pain right after the injection and they it progressively gets better. If the pain doesn't get better by the 10th day or so call the doctor and make them aware. Not the pain you had the injection for but the pain from the injection itself. Epidurals don't always work so it could be your not going to experience any relief. But the pain from the injection should be gone by now.

    Just thought I would stop by and welcome you to spine-health. Keep us posted on how you do.
