Anyone have an idea if weakness in leg (rt) is normal after a Trans Formal Epidural injection. I had injection yesterday and have noticed considerd right leg weakness return again. I had this issue with leg for about 3 weeks up until last weak when it seemed like like was getting some strength back, although pain was still present. I was noticing though prior to EPI it was getting a bit better, movement and function. I have noticed though today it is fatigued and weak agian. Is this a concern, normal should I call My Dr. if it continues tomorrow. Thanks for any help


  • When I have had my Trans Foraminal injections, the d/c instructions indicate to call with weakness, increased pain, fever. Even though you describe weakness prior to the injection, sounds like since you were getter stronger, then weakness returned after the injection, there is some major irritation of the nerve or disc due to the steroid.

    Good luck
