I am having my first ESi done next Thursday...My question is I am already in a lot of pain and my PM DR. told me it will get worse before it gets better I am not currently on any pain meds. Will he prescribe me something for afterwards if I ask him?

I am nervous about it already and I just dont want to be in worse pain.

Thank you in advance for any responses.


  • You could ask him,or your primary doctor....
  • mama- I would ask the dr before the injection. Depending on the dr, you may or may not remember as there is usually alot going on. My dr always had a group of people set up to have ESIs in a row... good luck...jade
