involuntary leg movement during LLESI?

edited 07/29/2015 - 10:48 PM in Spinal Injections
Hi. I had two Lower Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections today. This makes about 6 I have had total. During the procedure my leg started to move and jerk uncontrollably. My Dr. kept yelling at me to stop moving my leg and I was telling him I had no control over it. He just said "don't do it again". He began the injection on the other side and the same thing happened. He kept asking me why I was moving my legs. It was as if this had never happened to him before. I hate having to get these injections but sometimes, if he does it right, it does help. Have any of you experienced uncontrollable muscle movement or any kind of involuntary movement during this procedure before?
