I just had my second ESI in my lower back for ruptured discs. While getting the injections on the left side of my spine, I am assuming the Dr. hit the nerve as I had a severe sharp pain shoot down from the injection site all fo the way down the back of my leg to the bottom of my foot. On the right side I had pain from the injection site down the back of my leg to behind my knee. I didn't have this experience when I got the first set of injections 2 weeks ago. Now I am experiencing severe hip joint pain as well as an achey flu like pain in both of my legs. The shots have done nothing for my back in fact it hurts worse now which to my understanding the increased back pain is normal for the first couple of days. My question is this is the hip joint and leg pain normal? Thanks for any input. I am trying to stay positive!
