Any development is made in this field or not. Is there any treatment other than interferon injection. What are the home remedies. Ginseng can work.?

Not recommended: Interferon is used for treating certain viral infections, in the case of viral hepatitis, is currently used for treating hepatitis c and sometimes hepatitis b. There are other drugs that can be added to augment the effectiveness of interferon for viral hepatitis. Herbal medications have little place in the treatment of viral hepatitis and in some cases can be harmful.

Is it normal to have back pain at the injection site of my epidural 2 months later?

No: Rarely. There is a distinction between continuous pain 2 months after an injection and the fairly sudden onset of pain after 2 months. In either case, it is best to follow up with the original person or team that assisted in your care.

Had injection 10month ago, but I still feel lump and pain at the injection site, also feel pulling down my leg. Pls what can I do?

Hematoma: The lump could be a hardened blood clot under the skin as some bleeding might have occurred at the time of the injection. This is not a dangerous type of blood clot but if it has hardened it may not completely dissolve. It shouldn't cause any other symptoms, however. See your physician if symptoms persist.

Is it okay to have severe pain at the injection site of a lumbar puncture followed by leg weakness?

Is it okay to have severe pain at the injection site of a lumbar puncture followed by leg weakness?

No, get evaluated: While the symptoms you describe may simply be a result of nerve root irritation, they may represent a hematoma- bleeding from the lumbar puncture site can put pressure on the nerve root or the spine itself. This can be extremely dangerous, and you should definitely get checked to rule out the possibility.

I have undergone an extraction for my lower, first pre-molar. An inferior alveolar nerve block was given to me but since, there's pain at the injection site and reduced mouth opening. What should I do?

I have undergone an extraction for my lower, first pre-molar. An inferior alveolar nerve block was given to me but since, there's pain at the injection site and reduced mouth opening. What should I do?

Not uncommon: Occasionally, for this type of injection, the muscles may go into spasm and there is also some local inflammation which produces the symptoms that you describe. Take some otc pain medication such as advil, motrin, aleve (naproxen) or what you normally take for a headache. Warm rinses and external moist heat may help as well. This should pass shortly. Call your own dentist if still concerned.

Dentist yesterday AM for filling. Still hurts to open mouth & red/pain at the injection site of the local anesth. Is this normal, & for how long?

Injection trauma: The needles we use are extremely sharp and fine, but as they penetrate the tissue they may injure muscles, blood vessels or other tissues. This almost always quickly subsides (1-3 days) although I cannot give you a definite time frame. You can use warm salt water rinses and OTC pain medication such as Advil, Motrin, Aleve (naproxen) or what you would normally take for a headache.

Which injection site requires the most exposure (underpants lowered the farthest or removed), ventrogluteal, or dorsogluteal?

Proper technique: I feel that the entire buttock should be exposed so that the injection can be properly administered in the upper outer quadrant of the gluteus muscle. With proper technique damage to underlying nerves is avoided.

Local reaction: As with any immunization, you can have a local reaction at the injection site. This can cause it to be a little sore, there may be a small lump, and sometimes even a little redness.
