I had the Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection on Friday morning and now I have major pain in my left arm and increased weakness.
Yesterday afternoon I called the PM to let them know and they did not seem to concerned about it.
The pain in my arm is in the area where you would get a Flu-shot or a tetnus shot.
It burns there like there is an ice pick in there. My arm feels weak and I can not really hold it up. It hurts to get dressed or raise a small bottle of water to my mouth. Thank God I am right handed.
I also notice that I have some increased numbness in certain spots on that arm as well.
At this point I still have the searring pinching burning pain in the left shoulder and from the base of my skull down into the scapula area. The doc said yesterday afternoon that it is to soon for the steroids to start working.
The problems in my left arm concern me because I did not have that burning in the flu-shot area before. This is something new!
What do you guys think? Is this something to be concerned about? It has only been a few days, when should I become concerned?
Has anyone had this happen to them?
I am scared!
