Return of symptoms?: Are those where your symptoms were existing prior to the injection? If so, seems like the injection may have worn off. If not, need to step back an evaluate these symptoms as if they are new. If pains is SEVERE and walking is limited, please have your physician evaluate you and attempt to find the source of the symptoms!

Communicate : This ESI appears to have been quite different, and there has been an adverse reaction. There should not be managed by delay.
Notify the appropriate doctor ASAP, as this needs to be evaluated and managed.
