Epidural Steroid Injection
New Reply Follow New Topic. The problem now is he is hiiding everywhere and coming out after we leave for work. I vomited as soon as I got to the parking lot from the pain and trauma. I have had terrible tremors from the medications. Kind of scared if I press my luck could stir something up with additional injections. Barb I had one in lumbar area today. I pray on it.
I was told the disc thinning was normal for someone my age I tried everything, and nothing seemed to help. Your nose will thank you. This has sent me to a psychiatric hospital for 4 days because of the depression. I did get a nice wave of hot sparks down my left let when they did the anaesthetic, but then it was fine.

But take a minute to learn the different types and how to use them. It can make the difference between success and failure in clearing up that blockage. Your nose will thank you. You can buy these over the counter or with a prescription from your doctor. They get rid of your stuffiness by narrowing blood vessels in the lining of your nose, which shrinks swollen tissues.
Don't use them for more than 3 days, or your cold symptoms could get worse. Doctors call this the "rebound effect. They're also called "saline" nasal sprays, and you can buy them without a prescription. They loosen up your mucus and keep it from getting crusty.
Since they don't contain any medications, feel free to use them as often you like. You can get these over the counter or with a prescription. Nerve block worked great but I had to pay a deductible since my doctor was doing it out of a hospital.
So 2 weeks later I decided to go to a different doctor who was doing the block from his pain management practice and thus I would not have to pay a deductible per my insurance plan.
That shot did nothing at all. I hope all of you ask around as I did to get a reputable doctor. I got healed by one doctor but not another so it is not all the same. I had three injections all of which worked for a few days to two weeks then stopped. The excruciating pain returned and only Vicoden 5 mg times a day controlled the pain. Vicoden at that dose is the lowest dose prescribed.
My sister recently died of throat cancer and she complained constantly of pain. She died with unrelieved pain.
As a cancer patient she was prescribed Morphine 2 mg. Our doctors are violating their Hippocratic oath — Do No Harm. Then the patient be damned. I am glad this helped you Randy. Do you have severe and crippling arthritis? I do not know what diagnosis you have for your lower back, but I had a laminectomy 8 yrs ago due to unrelenting pain from a herniated disk for over a yr and could barely walk on one of my legs.
I have done well since surgery until this summer, now have arthritis, bulging disc, degenerative disc etc and had facet injections 3 was ago with no relief, but pain is no way like prior to my laminectomy. Doc wants to do transforaminal epidural now — I am researching it. Have u tried Duexis for pain or Tramadol? Just had an ESI. How did the TESI transforaminal go? My understanding is that it is somewhat more effective. You have that right The goverment needs alot more schooling to boss the doctor Then for them to tell how to doctor and meds we need Lol Goverment good job!!!
People that need pain meds cant get them like they need too Goverment wants to stop street drugs and stop people overdose Well now people are dying faster now then before. I might as well take a Flintstones vitamin. They wont give you anything for pain! Why is that the safer alternative? No wonder people end up using street drugs. I had the lumbar epidural the beginning of February. A few weeks later I began having tremors in my left Leg and no feeling in 3 toes.
If I stand for any length of time both legs tremble so bad. I went back to my Orthopedic surgeon today, gave me muscle relaxers and told me to come back in 2 months! Iam sorry for your pain. It happened to me few years ago. When the medicine is working in the beginning then starts to wear off the tremors could have started.
They do put a lot of medicine in and I used to get epedurals with out being put to sleep so I felt a lot of pressure. I have the narrowing scar tissue , arthritis ect. My tremors after a good while went away. I Pray for you and everyone. I am still going through it all. But the epedural to give me hope any relief is worth living with out pain even for a short period of time.
I actually go tomorrow for one in my neck I have never had. Iam at the worst pain in my upper shoulder left neck ever. I bought a non slip bath Mat I thought was top of line good one. I got shower went to get out I was standing towards the end it rolled out from under me. I came down really hard on right side ribs. I thought I was dying in pain.
And got MRI neck worried about my fusions. I hope and Pray this injection helps. My whole left side neck shoulder is swollen really big. I had pain before but not even close to this. Just have to have Faith and try to be positive no matter what!
I was going to say to you also hun you may need to get a 2nd a pension. I could also be a pinched nerve. Have had 6 or more without your results. Greetings saw your post…just had my first injection last week. I have had it done like 10 times it does not work!! I have had my spine broken twice and 6 staples in my skull that is not all.. A woman did not see the floresent color I was wearing.. I thought she was going to stop!!!
I got knocked out!!! Now my life is HELL. Sorry my sight is blurry also and all I hear is a high pitch constantly in my ears.. I can not live in this much pain anymore!!! I have had the worst headache of my life for the past 13 months…I had a MRI and was then told that C2-C4 were inverted causing spinal deformity. I know I am not a doctor, but with all the research I have done i truly believe this deformity is doing something to my nerves that are causing this unbearable headache.
I am 27 yrs. I have been to a neurologist, neuro surgeon, chiropractor biggest mistake ever… I know have terrible neck and shoulder problems on the left side , and now i am with the anestesiologist. Has anyone had a headache that was caused by spinal deformity? It seems my pian have worsing since I had the epidural injection.
I have had my first injection about a week ago. It has made my pain worse plus a list of side-effects has come with it. I went to the dr. He said he will give me one that is not as strong this time and if it causes continued pain to call him and he will call my referring dr. I am getting depressed by all of this. I have been in pain for 6 months, now i have side effects from the injection and the the dr.
I have had the worst experience with my back injury. I completely understand your frustration. I originally had severe pain in my back but after going to the therapist once and doing the exercises he recommended, the pain left my back and went into my leg. A friend got me in to see the surgeon early by pulling strings and he referred me to the pain mgt specialist who last week gave me an epidural shot. A week has passed and am still in significant pain but no where near as bad as it was.
Plus the steroids are giving me night sweats and nausea. Best darn thing I have had done. No major recovery time and went back to work in weeks. I just had another ESI for a different disc level and I am feeling better from another disc that is a problem child. I to am , a Vietnam vet having back trouble, ruptured disc L4 L5 S1, pain in right leg bad. God Bless all My Pals and thank you for your prayers, give thanks to Military Doctors, they are the best….. Hi Michelle, I am having my first injection Friday in my cervical spine due to pinched nerve, arthritis, degenerate disc ect.
How are you doing now? With my first epidural, I cried the whole time. From the time I had to lay flat on my stomach to the time the needle went in. It took two days to get over the bad pain, 2 weeks before returning to somewhat normal function.
That doctor did not do another steroid injection, instead I had rhizotomy done first on one side of the lower lumbar then a week later on the other side. I have changed back doctors and this back doctor gave me a sedative which helped greatly. The only way to have a lower back epidural is with anesthesia!
Feeling no pain in my back and legs after almost 14 hours except for my headache. The epidural , for me, was a piece of cake after having 6 steroid in my neck and back with no sedation. Now that was pain! I also have the same problem.
Had my first series of injections cervical about 2 months ago, and they worked instantly…for about 2. One entire day I just sat and cried. You should know that I take sleep med, and 2 antidepressants, as well as Lyrica for my Fibromyalgia. Feels like my back is in a vise grip that squeezed tighter when I move. I am very concerned that I have made a mistake going throught this again, but i will reserve judgment for a couple of days of healing. I have people praying for me and I know it can really turn things around!
I am so sorry Cheryl. My name is Candy and I have Bad neck pain from a car accident. I pray that you will be pain free. Candy how did the injection go for you? I am going in for my first one Friday for cervical pain which happens to be severe pain. I am nervous but I am also hoping this is going to give me at least some relief. The second injection was better because I actually asked for them to sedate me.
I am also feeling a little better. This was 2 yrs ago so likely you wont see this. Other than light a match, toss it and walk away. Injections have not helped the back and I am waiting for a procedure called tennex on my ankles. I am in misery no aspect of my life has not suffered. I even have been humiliated and degraded by bosses and forced to submit to drug tests. Not sleeping I am often dead during the day.
One night working late by my own choice I dozed briefly at my desk. This lying spiteful female supervisor took a picture of me, sent around to others and it ended up at our headquarters. Then sent me for a drug test My friends have disappea red, I live alone and am selling my house.
No one comes forward to help, and I wont ask at this point. Cleaning the sq ft home for endless showings brings me to tears and I am no punk I am becoming totally isolated content to be only with my dogs. Find a new d r!!! I just had a shot today. A few hours after my shot i got cold. I am had pain in my legs with muscle spams. Oh and a headache. My second pain doctor acted like it was me and he acted like all I wanted was medication.
I have since been diagnosed with Diabetic Thoracic Radiculopathy. I do believe these doctors need to remember the hand that feeds them. I just had my 3rd. I have had 2 injections and have no relief at all. I am scheduled for 1 more injection. Iv had chronic weakness and more pain than usual. I had my 2nd cervical epidural this past Friday, the 17th. The 1st one, I woke up around 3am screaming and crying for hours due to excruciating severe pain with paralysis for hours. The Dr told me that it was impossible.
I woke up again about 3am with the exact same symptoms after the injection Friday. I honestly thought I was dying or going to be paralylized. This was caused from a mvaohu where I rolled my truck, landed in a ravine, went thru an electrical pole,then flipped end over end landing upside down on the roof and hung upside down for an hour til somebody Sammy lights and called the police.
I had a cell phone but of course np signal to call for help. The election pole crushed the roof right where my head was at. They said it crushed my spine like a soda can.
Has anybody out there heard of such a thing or experienced such a thing front a cervical epidural? Please write if so. Thanks for your time. Accidentally punctured my nerve on my last cortisteroid shot. It was two days ago. I felt paralyzed in the neck and arms after I had nerve seizures. I feel good now, just sore with some lingering nerve pain in my fingers.
I should say my muscles feel like I was hit by a Mack truck lol, but they had quite the workout during while seizing! Im beginning to feel Some relief from the steroid shot. I recognized every nerve ending and the pain it caused. My lumar shots help too.
I sneezed and ruptured a disc at 24yrs old. Scar tissue, painmeds, surgeries……….. Degenerative disc disease is cruel. I am in the same situation. The keep giving me medications that have terrible side effects. This has sent me to a psychiatric hospital for 4 days because of the depression.
All they did was keep me medicated. I have had terrible tremors from the medications. I am now just taking regular aleve and a muscle relaxer and laying on a heating pad. I know this will eventually get better, but it is taking a long time. I will keep you in my prayers. We will get through this!!!! Cheryl i know it was 3 yrs ago that u commented but it made me furious since they have treated me like a drug.
That was totally uncalled for and extremely unprofessional. I would have walked out and reported him. I would have gone on the computer and rated him also. I hope yr problems were resolved. Got the same problem hot one. Shot on left side yo wake up my nerves Dr. Told me it will go away pain still there gotten worse did go back for my other treatments pain never went away still n pain.
I am so sorry that you are going through this and having to deal with these type of doctors. I have suffered for years and have been off and on with different doctors some have helped and prescribed me decent medicine and some have told me I was taking it as well.
All I can say is keep praying and know that you are not alone. I got so mad at one doctor one day that I just snapped, he told me that I was lying about the pain I was in and I just lost it I locked the door to the room we were in and I beat him in the back so many times telling him that he was going to know how I felt.
I hope God blesses you and provides a way for you to have some relief. My heart goes out to you, I too live with chronic pain. The humiliation of being labeled a pill seeker is almost too much to bear. You did what I can only fantasize about. These doctors take an oath to relieve suffering, then act like GODS and judge people. I loved the post about how some should work with dead people. Good luck to you, I hope your pain gets better. Had the shot left S1-L5 left side nerve root. Lasted 8 months or so.
But now no disc left bone on bone. Had another shot couple months ago and another one couple days ago WITH unbearable pain. Also above no disc left TL1, with more bone spurs left side. I have to say with my faith and the grace of God, the strength, peace, comfort, wisdom and Love he give me everyday.
Still not taking any oxy or any other Opbits. That why I got off to feel again know where my level of pain is. Be able to think clearly again. But at least not downing more and more pain pills using pain patches or having to go to hospital and get morpheme shot etc..
Get a different Dr. Should call you a liar. See an anaesthesiologist, o so sorry for your pain. His ego is more important to him than your pain. You need to find another one. I hate doctors who think they know it all and immediately suspect a person is a junkie looking for a high.
Mr High-and-Mighty needs to be in your shoes before he judges. Cheryl, I had my second cervical epidural a week and a half ago. I woke up in agony my right breast , shoulder arm and hand and it has not gotten better. It hurts to have water over my hand. It feels broken and numb. Wow just like you and this morning I have a blinding headache from my neck the one thing I had the shot to eliminate.
Hi I have nerve damage in both arms I had a emg needles up and down one arm now I have two. I had an epidural on July 24, I have felt no relief. On the contrary feel more stiffness and hard for me to sit back on a chair for long periods of time. Has anyone had this type of experience after an epidural? I had my first epidural Friday and felt amazing until today. Did the second one help? I just had a cervical injection on Wednesday.
I felt relief almost instantly through today. Not really sure what to think. Yes, I have episodes of head pain. This happened after my 2nd cervical fusionm. I started to notice after physical therapy sessions while I was driving home I would get pain in my eye. I have also been asleep but woke up with eye pain more in the right than left. Went to eye specialist and they are convinced it is coming from my neck.
I was diagnosed with occipital neuralgia. Of recent, changed neurologist and new one put me on verapamil ER mg.
My spine is all messed up from multiple things. Email if you can. I got the injection, for two week I had the worst headache, PT called my doctor he said to wait another week to see what happens. I got worst I had to have a blood patch — the fluid from the injection was leaking out into my brain and making me have the headaches.
I have read a lot about these injections and no drug company approves them for your spine! I was involved in a car accident when a teenager and had headaches ever since, seeing Many so Called Professionals about my headaches and my neck was a total waste of 25 years. After seeing a specialist in Regina whom all previous doctors said I had a shoulder problem and going to see this Dr. Nothing wrong, yet I could not lift my arms past abdomen high.
I went to see a Surgeon by the name of Dr. Buwembo in Regina and he could not believe I was walking never mind working everyday. I was scheduled for emergency Surgery on my neck and 2 weeks before the surgery I had a Heart Attack at the age of 44, surgery was postponed for 6 months and then this amazing Doctor did a reconstructive surgery on my neck and during recovery I had another Heart Attack so I learnt later and had 4 stents put in them plus paddles to restart me. From the time I left the hospital on I was pain Free for the first time since 18 years old.
Some patients have written ill reports about this Doctor if you check on Sask. Pillay in Regina and the only surgeon I will ever let operate on my neck is Doctor Buwembo.
These 2 specialists are the Best in Western Canada and Dr. If they have nothing to hide from you, you can obtain them for your own personal file to be sure that the Doctor wrote or answered all your concerns!
Freedom not free nor is Healthcare and you must be the squeaky wheel to get proper health care no-matter where you live! Yes, I have headaches for years all due to my back issues and live off RX Ibuprofen mg every three hours — all day, every day. I have a lot of back issues and had surgery already which did not help at all.
In fact, the surgery helped some issues and brought on others. I feel So Much better already! I may get a full night sleep tonight! I have been suffering from terrible Sciatica from my left Hip to Lower Leg for just about 7 weeks. I tried everything, and nothing seemed to help.
The injection was not painfull at all, and in a few weeks, if needed, I will be happy to get another one. I had this injection 3 weeks ago and it has not helped at all, in fact it has made things slightly worse. I am suffering from facet joint arthritis, due to thinning discs in my lower spine. I was told the disc thinning was normal for someone my age The pain is unbearable at times and I am unsure what to do next.
Any info would be appreciated. This seems to be the only thing my, not board certified, DO, not even an MD wants to do.
Frankly, NO, I will not do it. Another thing, I had an spinal when I had my daughter 20 years ago, to this day I still have numbness in my right arm. Lower back injections are no wear near the spinal cord so there is not a 1 percent chance of paralysis.
The medication dissipates within months, so WHAT went wrong with yours? Acidentally poke my nerve and cause nerve seizures, par for the course. Just got the shot it did not hurt at all. I have a bulging disk in my neck with the pain shooting down my right arm.
Its been a tough month especially out of work. Hopw this will help. Greg Please could you let me know how successful it was and how your neck is now? I have just been diagnosed with a cervical prolapsed disc and my consultant has recommended I speak to the anaesthetist in the few next days to see if I want to go ahead with an epidural on Wednesday.
I am going through the same thing… I had neck pain 4 couple years but never sought medical attention until a month ago. I have to make it some kind of way. My wife got tired of me complaining about the pain and uncomfortable so I went to Dr and doctor sent me to orthopedic surgeon orthopedic surgeon sent me to get a shot in my neck 4 days ago.
Now I cannot sleep through the night pain is so bad. Doctor sent a email to me that I am eligible for surgery. I want to get the surgery because after I retire I will not have good insurance so I want to settle the issue now. Anybody got any advice I would appreciate it.
The cortisone shots have made the pain worse in the night time I cannot sleep and my wife and I are starting to get on each others nerves because my ability to be patient and nice is going away as the pain increases along with the fear of possibly being crippled later.
I just got a cervical epidural yesterday morning for pain in my neck, shoulder, arm and hand with tingles in my fingers. I opted for the awake rather than the sedated injection. I was rather strange to feel the pressure and hear the injection.
There was some pain but it only lasted a few moments. From start to finish was only fifteen minutes or so and I walked out within thirty minutes from check in to check out. I felt a little sleepy the rest of the day and my neck hurt some after the pain killer injected, Novocaine? One day later my constant companions; tension in neck, headache, neck pain, arm pain and hand pain are all but gone.
I still have some tingling in my fingers. I felt pretty good this morning so did some heavy lifting next day after injection and that was a bad idea. Your condition sounds a lot like mine even the feeling better and lifting part.
I have not had the the shot yet. But I would like to try the shot first. What do you think Thanks. Hello Gainer, I have just been recommended a cervical epidural by my consultant today. My symptoms are similar to yours — pins and needles in left fingers and hand and pain in arm especially upper arm. How are things of you now? I look forward to hearing hopefully. I had a epidural done last friday in my neck.
Was having pain, numbness and tingling on my left side. The shot was not too bad, but I left the office still in pain. Now today, My left arm is very heavy and lifting my fingers takes work. Everything just feels so much heavier than before. Can anyone relate to this????? And if so, your input will be greatly appreciated. Hello Trisha, I hope you are OK now? I am considering the cervical epidural but am anxious to hear how others have got on. Any comments you could make would be appreciated.
Hi Joanne, Did u get the cervical epidural? I had mine this past Thursday, so 4 days ago. I am still taking my Norco for pain. Headaches at the base of my head where my neck starts.
I have 2 bulging discs. How r u feeling? I had the epidural injection done in my lumber region today and have never felt pain like it. I was told to fast from midnight which I did.
I was told I would be having a sedative. I did not really want this as I had looked up on the internet tand it said it was not really neccessary. When I went to the hospital the doctor that was doing it said he did not use a sedative so I was pleased and very calm when I went in to the theatre. However when he came to the bit where he puts the fluid in the canal spaces I felt total agony going down my legs.
I have never felt anything like it in my life and it seemed to last forever. I just hope that it has all been worth it Cat. Did the pain that you felt when he gave you the injection ever go away , I had the same thing happen to me.
I am still in pain. Sorry to say Cyndi I had two in , the first put me in the hospital for 4 days with such pain morphine would not take it away, in my back, right leg. They forced me to take another after I got out of the hospital. The second one did not hurt but it did not releive the pain that the first one put me in. I blacked out for a minute and would have fallen off the table but the man that was doing it grabed me by the coller and kept me from hitting the floor.
I have lived in the pain for 19 years now, it never goes away. Lost my job anyway because they forced me back to work and I had a seziure on the job because of the pain.
I dont know how these jackasses get by with holding your job over your head and just torcher the crap out of you. After that the birddog that was sent to my appointments decided they were going to do 4 nerve blocks. They could here me screaming all the way out in the lobby. To hell with waterboarding, jus send them to these Sadistic asses, and they will tell them anything they want to know. I had my first shot back in July, My hip and lower back pain got better, but the numbness in my left foot is still there.
I just had the second shot 2 weeks ago, after this shot the numbness seem to have increased. What I need to know, have some one else been experiencing headaches. I read some horror stories before my 2 shots this morning and was very nervous.
When I get home from work my clothes and my shoes are damp. At night, the bed sheets are wet, especially near my feet. The sweating of my hands during the day is constant, my fingertips are wrinkled as if I have been in the bathtub for a long time. Based on your comments, I am fairly sure that the sweating must be as a result of the injection, as these symptoms first appeared the day after injection.
I have been taking a shower when I get home, another before I go to bed, and even several times in the middle of the night, as well as my normal shower in the morning. This was a cervical injection. I have had 2 lumbar injections in the past, and do not recall this sweating happening before, so I doubt I experienced it after the first 2 injections. I wish I knew what caused it this time. Since this is the first time it happened to me, I was wondering how long it took before the sweating went away.
Concerned over a year ago. I was just looking up side affects for the injection. Couldn't find what you looking for? New Reply Follow New Topic. While neither ESI was exactly pleasant they were not very painful at all. Only a little sore the next day or so. Nothing I could not deal with. My problem is not with the injection itself but the side effects, neither of which are listed in any site about ESI nor in the Dr's brochure. The first problem and one I experienced with both shots, was the profuse sweating.
The kind that causes me to change my PJ's and blowdry my hair in the middle of the night. This has not happened since I went through menapause, yrs ago. I have also noticed that I do not have complete control of the bladder.
Iamges: side effect of steroid shot for cold
Some steroids have less systemic whole body side effects, notably budesonide when compared to the more commonly used prednisolone, and can still be used safely in some patients who have become diabetic while on prednisolone. Surgery try to avoid unless its the last straw it might help your problem now only to make a new one thats alot worse how do I know Had two Dr one said wait as long as u can eventhough you have a very damaged neck the other you need surgery right away wanted so bad for the pain to go away anyway had 3 fusions in my neck 2took after 3 years one did not I have cervical stenosis with myelopathy ,degenerative disc disease you name it ive gained 40 pounds hurt night and day what worked best was keep walking eat chocolate smile lose weight stay away from DR pain management and make the best out of it cause it here for ever but with a good frame of mind and not feeling sorry for my self has been more helpful I promise.
Most of the time, relatively high doses are used initially to achieve an effect, then tapered to the lowest dose and frequency needed to keep clinical signs at bay.
But we were done! Was having pain, numbness and tingling on my left side. These symptoms come and go but mostly come making any daily task or night of sleep nearly impossible. I visited him two nights ago and held him in my arms with him on a catatonic state. Anyway I had the Cervical Steroidal which I was totally freaked about.
