Hey all! I had the Ep injection 3 days ago. Still a little sore yet but haven't got any releif from it. During the injection the pain was kinda like givin birth all over again. Im still having tingling in the left leg and foot as before but now I have pain in that area that I didnt have before the injection. Anyone else have that happen to them or am I the only one? I havent got alot of releif from it yet but I know it takes time so again the waitin game! :))( The bad thing is I cant take my son trick or treating tonight because of it. But I guess thats for the best for me anyways. Just wanted to let u all know how it went. I'll keep u all posted if any thing changes. Have a Happy Halloween to all. }:)



  • Have you tried an icepack on the site? I too was sore until 8 days after. Was that your 1st injection? Happy Halloween. Charry

  • Only only felt like someone punched me in the back for about 4 days. I felt very bruised.
    I of course had no leg pain associated with my back problems. If it does not subside by Monday I would give them a call.

    Yes Ice as much as you can. That will bring down any swelling. I hope you have something for the discomfort.

    I'm with ya on the trick or treating thing to. Home this year for the first time.
