I went in for my injection yesterday. I talked with the doc and he thought it would be best to try a midline injection. This, unfortunately does not usually require sedation...OMG, it was just awful! I walked out a few minutes later and went home. Not long after, I was in horrible pain and today it's worse. I called the surg center to ask if that's normal. She wanted to know if it was just the injection site. No, it is also down my legs and low back. She said that may mean it's working and should only feel that way for a couple days. Pain meds bringing it down to about an 8. If I tilt my head down,(which I am resolved not to do again)horrible shooting pain in low back. Why is this? Anyway, Doc said that we would try this and if it works, do another in a week or so. I will ask to be sedated! If it doesn't work, he wants a bone scan, he thinks it may be a facet joint problem? Then, we would try nerve ablation, I think he said. I just wanted to let you guys know, no relief yet, and just waiting. Is this just pain from the injection trying to work?
