Howdy and glad to hear about the result. I too have had spectacular results with these injections...but what you are describing could not be the epidural but more likely the SI injections. The epidurals are scheduled with major IV relief as the needle is ginormous and goes into your spinal cavity...using X-ray for guidance. I get two injections spaced three months apart and the solution is a numbing agent, steroids and toradol....I'm down to 10mg Percocet a day which is great for me along with a daily celebrex....anything I can do to avoid surgery is fabulous!

I went to see the pain management Dr. today. It is indeed an ESI that I received. It is available with or without IV sedation. i did without both times. Uncomfortable, but not painful
