I'm still trying to get past the side effects from last week's epidural steroid injection, but not having much luck. I felt sick in the night last night and am worse this morning, so guess today it is finally time to call the doctor's office and see if they can get me through this a little easier. My acid reflux has flared up from the steroids and even a double dose of medication isn't working to calm it down.
The ESI seems to have helped my pain quite a bit, but these side effects have made me pretty certain that it's not worth it to have a second injection. I just can't function with very little sleep, constant nausea, persistent hot flashes/sweats and a general flu-like feeling that won't go away. It's been over a week and I'm ready to throw in the towel.
Take care all... :&
