Re: SI Joint injection worked for low back pain in SI area

LL:

I might be facing a SI injection. Can you tell me how it was done and what you felt afterwards?

I've had cervical ESI's and they would put me under sedation and then do the injection. I had no real pain after - minor irritation only - and of course was loopy from the versed. Just wondering how the SI injection may differ.
