It seems that after my second ESI, my symptoms are a lot more noticeable than they were before these injections. The second one ESI sent a horrible electric burning sensation down the front of my entire right leg. I've felt no relief.
I don't know if these symptoms are "just in my head" or if they are caused by sciatica.
- Constant tingling sensation, a bit similar to how it feels when your foot falls asleep
- My leg feels heavier to lift than my left one (which I have no problem in) I notice this while walking, it feels like it takes more of an effort to put the right leg forward. I also notice it when I'm laying down, I'll lift my left leg and it feels normal but when I try my right one, it feels heavier and it hurts the right side of my lower back, where I'm having all of my issues/pan.
- My toes feel a bit numb/asleep. If i touch them or run something along them like what the doctor does when he's testing you, I can feel it. But they still feel numbish/asleep.
- My toes feel cold, not to the touch. But I *feel* them being cold, like on the inside.. I don't know if that makes any sense. The toes on my left foot don't have that sensation.
Am I going crazy or are all these common symptoms? Someone help
