Data Entry Job – SCAM!

First ESI 2 days ago...how long does it take?
Hi, all. Really glad to have found this place, hoping to get some information/answers from people who know how I feel!
I have three herniated discs (L3,L4,L5/S1), stenosis right neural foramen, two deteriorating vertebrae. My back hurts, but for me the worst symptom is burning/tingling of my left heel. It drives me crazy. Has been going on for almost 8 years....I've been on almost a dozen different meds, had physical therapy, accupuncture, etc. In the past year it has gotten almost unbearable, especially at night (how does it know I am trying to sleep??? lol)so I finally got into a pain management clinic and they recommended ESI.
I had my first injection on Wednesday. So far, I feel worse rather than better....more burning and tingling than before. I was told it would take 3-5 days for the steroids to "kick in".....does that jive with your ESI experience?? Seems strange that they would have no effect at all in the first couple days. I am really hoping to get some relief. Would like to hear other experiences...
