I recently had epidural steroid injection and I have a burning pain in groin. Is this normal?

Depends: The doctor who answered your question is correct w/ exception. If the injection were what is called "transforaminal" and was at the level of the 3rd spinal nerve on that side and no "caine" was used in the epidural space, these symptoms could occor and would not be unexpected. ...Read more

Help! How effective is cervical facet nerve burning when steroid injection relief only lasts 2 days? I want something long term, w/no more meds!!

Very successful: Radio frequency ablation is the process that heat the nerve to prevent it from relaying a pain message to the brain. Generally, benefits last up,to a year. BUT you must be certain that the treated nerve is the pain source, or the treatment will fail. Often, there is more than 1 cause for your pain. ...Read more

tingling feet?

You will be fine: There is nothing in medicine that has no risk. But a lumbar epidural steroid injection that you are getting has extremely low risk. In my patients, this injection works about 80% of time ranging from good to excellent results for back and leg pain. It typically does not help with tingling. It is also only temporary and the benefits lasts from a few days to a few weeks and ocassionaly few months. ...Read more

Disc bulge indenting thecal sac at L5/S1, possible impringment of left S1 root. Could this be cause of burning toes at night? Steroid injection help?

Disc bulge indenting thecal sac at L5/S1, possible impringment of left S1 root. Could this be cause of burning toes at night? Steroid injection help?

S-1 root gives leg-: -pain from buttock 2thigh posterior & lateral calf. If only all Ur toes, most likely not. Sounds more like a neuropathy from a different case, such as diabetic neuropathy . I don't think epi will help. If a neurologist has seen U & U had an EMG, & recommend it I would follow his/her advise . ...Read more

No! not normal, but: Swelling could be from bleeding which can occur from even a single needle pass. Use some hot compresses and some pain meds and in about 1-2 weeks it'll disappear. Good luck. ...Read more
