Dr. Soren Singel answered:

Is nausea and a headache a side effect from a facet injection?

No. Unless...

Motion_sickness
Facet injections are usually performed by folks who have little to zero spine training. Chances are your provider (anesthesia pain guy) poked the needle way medial and straight into your thecal sac causing an internal spinal fluid leak (AKA spinal headaches). Or, provider did not aspirate prior to injecting so the cortisone was injected into your blood stream (oops) causing the same symptoms.

Does an epinepherine endometrial adrenaline injection side effects last? And for how long? I had a biopsy today and they injected me inside my cervix.

Not likely

Cervix
It sounds like they injected some lidocaine with epinephrine in your cervix today for a biopsy/colposcopy? Those medications they infected have a super short 1/2 life, meaning they don't stay in your system for very long at all. Definitely all gone by the time you wrote this question. No lasting side effects. Hope biopsy comes back normal!

Get this evaluated

Epidural
Cervical epidural injections are subjected to a limited space to work in, and on occasion, unusual reactions may occur. Likely, this is only temporary, and of no longterm consequence, but play it safe and contact your doctor today.

Is there any side effects of Ozone injections for disc issues? for both cervical and lumbar disc issues?

Ozone injections

Ozone
With the exception of ozone injected into a blood vessel (very bad complications) there are no known complications but also this therapy is questionable at best...what is being treated? I don't believe you should be trying this.

I had 3 cervical facet joint injection yesterday. Is it normal for my neck to have extreme pain and stiffness? What to do for the pain?

Some is normal

Open-uri20130210-30252-1c5fupj
Extreme pain and stiffnes is unusual. Should be evaluated for menigitis, especially if you have a fever. Ice for about 45 minutes 3-4 times per day, will address inflammation and swelling, never apply ice to the skin, always over a towel or clothing. Pain can be relieved with over-the-counter medications like Advil or Aleve. Follow directions on label.

What does the cervical facet joints do in your neck? What kind of injection does a doctor give for radiculopathy? Please help and explain

Cervical facets

Open-uri20140412-30279-sf99vu
The 2 facet joints are 2 of the 3 moving parts of each level of the spine. The disc is the 3rd. These joints protect the spine and spinal cord from abnormal motion or translation. If the facet joint were to fracture or "break", it could lead to damage of the nerves/spinal cord. Facet injections are done to help with inflammation in the joint by injecting steroid in the same way you have knee shot
