Hi, New here. What I want to know is after an injection, what would an infection feel like? Three weeks after an injection my tail bone and hip hurt all the time now. Standing,sitting,laying down. So now after back surgury, compressed nerve on L5, I still have pain in leg and thanks to that injection more pain. Just to let you know, that shot hurt like He??. I'll never do that again. The epidural steroid injection was a walk in the park. Of which I can't do anymore.
What you are experiencing is obviously not right. Yes, it is possible that you have an infection, or?
Tkhomes, PLEASE call your doctor first thing on Monday morning and talk with him/her that day about what is wrong. Also make an appointment as soon as they can work you in.
I just had an injection through my tailbone. Man, when I realized where my doc was going to stick that needle I felt very uneasy. Actually, there was less pain than my first epidural which he injected through my back in April. At this point the "tailbone" injection is definitely helping. I will certainly keep in mind as time progresses if I find I am getting the pain you have described.
Again, PLEASE don't delay, call your doc and speak with him/her on Monday.
Will be thinking of you. Do let me know how things go.
An infection certainly could be one possibility. Iâm guessing that, since it wasnât mentioned in your original post, that you donât have any redness, pain, discharge, or fowl odor coming from the injection site? Any fever? If Iâve guessed wrong and you do have any of these symptoms you do or did need to seek immediate medical attention.
Many of us donât really ask or read the fine print regarding potential risk and side affects associated with medical procedures of every kind. Where injections are concerned the odds of any of those âthingsâ happening to you sounds a little like the lottery odds. Everybody who has had an injection is one of those people who make up the odds; unfortunately you could be one of those people who got the short stick so to speak. Unfortunately, the symptoms that you are describing is a fairly normal and common side affect that may resolve with time or might not.
SIJ injection is for pain in SIJ only. And pain in SIJ is just one symptom of pelvis dysfunction like ilium upslip. Even if the injection heals the pain in SIJ it won't heal other symptoms. The pelvic dysfunction should be corrected.
