Ouch! Tailbone feels broken after Lumbar Epidural

I had my first epidural injection yesterday and now my whole backside feels so sore, my tailbone actually feels broken! I was just wondering what experiences you've had with soreness after these injections and if this is normal?


  • I always had more pain after epidural injections and icing does help. It takes a few days up to 2 weeks to feel better. I always have a heaviness feeling that kept me bent over for more than a week after. Hopefully the steroid is taking down the inflammation in a few days. That's my experience but I hope you get some relief soon. Charry

  • Sorry I can't help you. However I would hope that some where in your paperwork info that this is explained if it is normal or not?
