epidural injections

I am scheduled for sciatic joint injections to relieve my chronic lower back pain.  Are there any adverse reactions to this procedure?  Is it safe?  I receive cortisone and Euflexxa injections in my knee ( Bone on bone- but trying to postpone replacement surgery )  Will these two procedure interfere with each other?  Is that too much cortisonein my body all at once?  Timing of injections is staggered.This discussion is related to LUMBAR SPINE MRI.

Suggested Questions And Answer :


Lumbar Epidural Injections

Ellen I have never had any luck with the 3 sets of LESI's and honestly they were super painful. I have had steroid injections on other parts of my body like wrist and shoulders that did work very well.  My father has had them and had relief for months. It all depends on the person. Depending on how you do you may or may not need all three injections. Make sure you know the benefits and risks of the injections before you get them. I hope your pain stays away any you do not need them. Best of luck to you! Ginger

Epidural injection?

The injection will contain a corticosteroid which can help to greatly reduce inflammation. Sedation is not unusual, but you won't be put to sleep and it's all over in a few minutes. Best wishes.

pain during epidural injections

I had a myelogram two months ago (they injected dye) and I had the same problem you did. It hurt terribly down into my lower back/butt and they said it was the dye irritating the nerves. I'd never had lower back pain before. I still have the same pain everyday through my lower back/hips and down my legs and still they say its the dye. Are you doing better now? How long since your last injection?

Spinal stenosis and lumbar steroid epidural

I too have had exactly what you have described. I have had some relief from the epidural, but the pain has returned full force. I have been told by my doctor (who did not do the shot) that I could continue to have them without too much harm to the rest of my body. I have had two. The one thing I noticed was it made the rest of my back "crackly"). That doesn't cause pain but a bit of apprehension as I did not have this before the shots. I did not have groin pain. Did you overstretch your groin getting into the position on the table for the procedure? Or did you overdo something because you had relief for a bit because of getting the shot? Don't forget the rest of our body is under stresses when the back is in pain or out of allignment. It might be easy to stretch something. Put ice on it for a few days and if it does't get better report it again. (I hope you reported the pain to your nurse at least) Fellow feeling Kathie

I am so sorry for ur accident..I wouldn't wish this pain on anyone or anything...My Neuro that did surgery told me that my surgery was ok..and this was @ 2 mos. ago,but he isn't going to own up to that...that would put him in a sit. don't u think?  Well, I just pray that we both get the help we are looking for...I didn't realize this was an old post you'll prob. never see this..I hope that u do in some way I will pray that u do ....maybe then I can come to a conclusion in some way..GOD BLESS...    ***@****
