Has anyone's back pain and sciatica symptoms gotten worse after getting a steroid injection? I felt good walking out of the facility, next day was ok, 2 days later it was bad. Called the Dr. office and they said that it could take 2 weeks for it to take full effect. Here I am a month later and I now have sciatica down to my ankle (used to only go to my knee), burning sensations in my thigh and cramps in the bottom of my foot. These are all new.
So I got maybe 24 hours of relief from the shot and now I have symptoms that I never had before. From researching these shots and talking with my physical therapist I have learned that if the first one does not work the 2nd and 3rd are unlikely to work so I am not going to waste my time trying again. I got to many side effects from the first, which made the 24 hours of releif I got not worth it.
I go back to my neuro tomorrow.
