Hi.. I have a L5 herniated disc. (per MRI) . I was given a single epidural injection and it worked almost immediatley. They scheduled me for another shot 3 weeks after. I went to a different doctor within the same chain. I still felt pretty good so I thought maybe I shouldnt get this shot and wait till I need it. I told the doctor I felt great. THat about 90% of the sciatica was gone for now. He didnt mention not to get the shot. And I should have said something. This doctor gave me 2 injections in two seperate areas of my herniated disc. I couldnt walk about 30 minuites after. The first shot I was able to walk out and drive home about 5 mins after. I the numbness wore off several hours later. After a few days..I went for my short jog and inlcine walk. Added a bit of low weight weight lifting. Watching my form at all times. I went to bed that night and I could feel the sciatica in my left calf and different parts of my left foot . But I could also feel the same light sciatica in my right calf and foot. Plus I felt like it was happening on my right arm and finger tips. A bit itchy on my face area as well. Today my lower back has some pain and I feel a bit of the tingling all over head to toe as well as the the light spasms in my calf. What happened? Is this normal? It all went so perfect the first time around . The next shot is in 6 weeks.
