Had ESI in lumbar region for sciatica- nothing but problems since

I received my shot back on the 21st of last month, and today I have an appt. with my FNP to discuss all the issues I've been having. Hopefully, I am finally going to be heard!! Everything that I had before for pain before the shot has increased 10 fold and there are new problems I hadn't had before...

I actually wrote something up on the computer and printed it out...all the issues I've been having...that describes in detail what I am experiencing, and how it affects me...I figure that way I won't feel intimidated and won't forget anything I need to discuss with her...anyone have any other suggestions to help me? This is my first time seeing her, she has seen our daughter for allergies and bed-wetting, and seemed caring and compassionate.



  • with you to the appointment is always a good way of remembering what it is that you want/need to discuss with your provider.
    I did that alot, especially after surgery, when there were several areas that I needed to bring up but would forget or get overwhelmed. It made it so much easier to go through the list and discuss what the concerns were.
