Lower back pain DDD

Just thought I would say hello and ask a few questions, along with a moan sorry!

I have pain all the time and take pain medication.
I have had 5 spinal epidurals due to pain. The surgeons always say it is just a push and not pain. I have had pain every injections increasing every new injection I decided not to have another one as there wasn't any significant benefit. Is this just me or does anyone else have this problem?
Last week I had a injections using X-ray my notes said L4/L5 and S/5. I am in absolute agony after this. During the injections 4in all it was so painful and the sweat was horrendous . (I get hot and feel sick when the pain ramps up but its a standing joke that I do not normally sweat) when the procedure was finished I turned over onto my back and my right hand was numb and three fingers on my left hand were numb also. Is this normal?
I quite often have numb beelings in my hand and fingers, and my right leg quite often feels as though it doesn't belong to me. Another thing that has recently started to happen is my heel feels as though it is pulsing anyone else have these feelings.
Thanks for allowing me a moan!
