I just had my second ESI injection and I was a little curious it is normal to feel a sharp electric type pain during the procedure. The first injection it was more like pressure with a little burn, however this time it hurt really bad. The Dr stopped took still pics w the X-ray thing and emailed them to another Dr while he was in the middle of it had not even finished. I asked if everything was OK he said yes but two eyes are better than one. Then he finished. I ask the nurse why it hurt do bad this time and didn't the first and she said I probably had more inflammation and maybe he used more fluid then the other Dr ?? Just wondering if it usually hurts that bad or if maybe something was up. New w the injection thing and if it normally hurts that bad not sure if I could make myself do that again!!
