Last Wednesday I got my ESI + Facet Joint Injections. The first couple days afterwards I was really sore and had a bunch of painful spasms. But, by Saturday I was feeling better and today I feel better than I have in a long time. I also have more energy/will to do things than I've had in a long time as well.
I've always had pretty good luck with Facet Injections helping but my pain level this time is virtually gone (pain in the area)! I think my doctor found the sweet spot to inject the steroids. I go back for a second round on the 25th at two different levels. What's strange is Facet Injections work so well but RFA doesn't. I'm the medical odd ball I guess.
