I had a steroid injection at C6 right side 2 weeks ago. I had soreness from injection for 4 days which I knew would happen. They told me it would take a week for the steroids to kick in. About the 6-7th day I noticed my pain was getting worse not better. Now its been 2 weeks and pain just seems to continue to get worse.
I've had radiating pain from my shoulder down my right arm for about a year now. Now only does that seem to have went up a notch on the pain scale, but from my shoulder down to my shoulder blade on the left side is getting so bad I was in tears this morning. I didn't have much pain on that side before so I'm not sure whats going on.
I'm on zanaflex (3 a day) and Norco 7.5/325 mg (4 a day) but they aren't helping the pain at all right now. Could the shot have caused this? Since the shot I've taken it easy, no lifting or strenuous activity so I don't think it's something I've done. I did place a call into my PM Dr this morning but his receptionist told me him and his staff are at the hospital doing procedures, so I left a message.
I'd appreciate any input right about now. I've tried waiting this out but I'm not sure how much more I can deal with this. Thanks in advance.
