I had an epidural steroid injection at 20:00 hrs yesterday.
At 22:00 hrs I noticed my right butt cheek was completely numb.
At 02:00 hrs today I noticed the right side of my genitals had gone numb.
I read somewhere that temporary numbness can occur after an ESI.
Is anyone able to tell me how long 'temporary' should be?
It's 04:30 and I'm getting worried.
