Spinal Procedure this morning... hurting like hell tonight.

Evening guys, I had 4 cervical facet joint injections this morning under sedation with fentanyl and midazlolam due to the degree of arthritis in my neck.  The procedure went great, but now that the nerve blocks have worn off, I feel like I got hit in the neck with a baseball bat!  Im swollen, bruised, hurt like hell, and am starting to get side effects from the steroids they injected.  Gross feeling.   I posted here in the substance abuse forum for two reasons.  #1, I am most comfortable with you all, and #2, I often see posts of those in re

Suggested Questions And Answer :

Spinal Procedure this morning... hurting like hell tonight.

Hi Henry! So sorry you are going through this. The pain from the procedure is caused by the 5 cc bolus sitting between the intra vertibral spaces. It feels much better after the med is absorbed as the swelling, or sensation of swelling subsides. 24-36 hours. Hang in there and don't awaken the beast anymore than you have to.  Keep posting, and feel better soon.

Make an appointment to see your doctor. You clearly have a joint problem or a possible damage to the scaffoid bone.  Do you recall falling or knocking your hand a few days before?  Just something to think about.

Lupus Rash?

Hi Pantx. It kinda looks like the lupus butterfly rash. I personally would not take Prednisone over a long time, since it is only meant to be for a very short course. The problem with prolonged use, is the huge risk of further impairing the adrenals to produce cortisol, besides the fact that it is immuno-suppressive, leaving you vulnerable to infections. Prednisone as a  glucocorticoid analogue drug, down-regulates the body's natural production of glucosteroids. See an ND, knowledgeable in adrenal issues  to help you take care of your adrenals-specially restore cortisol production. This Prednisone treatment is potentially disastrous and most people who stay on it for long, usually never recover. Sorry, I'm not trying to scare you, but I know people, some very close to me, that went against my advice, and not even one of them got better! And as far as the COX-2, I can come up with a few safer and better natural anti-inflammatories, than that. Again the risk-benefit analysis, points to not taking it. Can you tell me more about you, in regards to your medical history, diagnosis, labs, lifestyle, diet, fitness, activity levels, symptoms, surgeries, accidents, traumatic events, childhood illnesses, family situation, stress levels and anything you think will help. Take care. Niko
