New Pain after ESI

I had the second esi 3 weeks ago for the pain in my leg. The pain in my leg is gone but I am having horrible low back pain that I did not have before. Is this normal to have new pain after an esi?



  • Shar~I don't know /think that it's normal,but I don't think it's that uncommon either,as I've read about it in other posts,and I have had new pain myself since last JUNE from my last ESI(cervical)
  • I would call the PM Dr. that did the ESI. He may want to do other injections or assessment. I had facet joint injections to help my backpain as well as trigger point injections for the muscle spasms. Good luck and hope the pain resolves. Charry
