Good afternoon. I am a long time chronic back pain patient and have had many, many injections (30+). I just had an injection 4 days ago and am having an unusual increase in pain and muscle spasms. I usually get sore after the injections and I expect that. I am talking about constant muscle spasms, nerve pain in both legs, and hip pain. Prior to the injection I was experiencing pain in my low back and down my left leg only. My hips didn't hurt before this injection, my right leg didn't hurt before this injection, and my muscle spasms were minimal. Can anyone tell me if they have experienced any of this?
