I have been fighting Sciatica for the last three weeks after having problems on the my lower right back.
I got my MRI and I have bulging Discs around my L4/5.
So, I got an epidural steriod injection yesterday in my L4/5 disc area. It hurt less than I thought it was going to and it hurt more than I thought that it was going to.
The needle going in didn't hurt as bad. The steroid being pumped in did though. Man I screamed loud when the drug got pumped in.
They say it takes a little while before the steroid impacts me. I am 24 hours into this now. I hope I start to feel a little better and the sciatica pain starts to go away from my left hip and leg.
Anyone else treat back pain or sciatica this way? Other suggestions?
