Well, I was originally scheduled for a facet block and an SI joint block (l5/s1). While I was on the table, I knew I felt extra sticks!! pressure and a little pain. I heard the doc (NS) say something about changes in the level above and instead of 2 shots I was given 4! I didn't bother asking what the changes were that warranted 2 extra shots so i'm wondering if anyone here has experienced something similar to this in the past?
I also developed unreal hiccups shortly after the shots. They are gone now but it was the strangest thing. Can't tell if its the longer lasting anesthetic he put in my back or the cortisone but something is definitely helping.
