Hi all. I had a steroid injection earlier today because of my L5 which is severely herniated on my left side/going down my leg.
I believe this was my 4th one. What is odd about this one is I am experiencing pain hours later where the pain almost feels like it did when they were putting the shot in. There is a fullness to it as well as a weakness & jabbing pain. I am wobbly when I walk so I have put myself in bed for the night. When I had the other 3 shots done in close to the same spot, I do not remember this happening to me. Also, this time, a different doctor (within the same practice did it). I'm wondering what, if anything, was different about this time.
When can I expect to be feeling better do you think?
