I wasn't sure whether to put this under the Lower Back Pain or Sciatica forum, so I'm posting in both. I have a herniated disc between L4 and L5. I was told it would take around 4 to 7 days to feel the results, however I'm worried that I won't feel any results since I see that's a quite often response on these forums. Basically, my question is: for those of you who did NOT receive any relief from the injection, did you feel the medication touching the nerve root that has been causing you so much pain during your injection? (this was quite painful) I did, and my doctor told me that was a good sign because that meant the medication was getting where it needed to be. So I guess I'm just wondering if everyone felt that, or if experiencing that means that I'm more likely to have better results from the injection.
I hope that makes sense!
Thank you so much!
