Headed to get an epidural steroid injection* for my neck-only had trigger point injections everywhere else (face/shoulders/knees/) C4-c7-three years of failed treatments or lack there of (thanks doc**pffft) how bad is the recovery as far as being sore? They always lie and say it's not bad but when i had FOUR TPI for my TMJ that shite felt like I had a tooth pulled. Omg miserable!! Thanks!!! 😷🤘🏻🙏 idk who did this drawing but what a rad sketch of anatomy!
Thanks I figured as much as far as being sore but my face is super hyper sensitive so praying for an easier time!!!! Thank you :) it's the only way they work I suppose-the drs I mean-they said they have to try this first but surgery is the only way for me-ahhh well. Here goes nothing !
I'm not sure if anyone has told. I have had around 3 or 4 in the past,but it makes you hungry like crazy and gain weight. No one told me until after the fact and I ask now and the doctors tell me we won't talk bout that now.. good luck and I hope it makes you feel better
I had trigger point injections over my shoulders and neck....was told i could be worse up to a week, but would then feel better.
It took me about a month to feel the benefit :-/ my physio thought my muscles spasm'd around the injection sites....it fookin hurt...but i did then get some relief :)
But definately do your best not to move the muscles/linking muscles of where they inject you...whilst i dont know for sure, due to living on my own, i had to fend for myself after having the injections, and i suspect that moving/using my arms, aggravated things...and i done minimal movement, so definitely rest....maybe up to 24 hours afterwards? Not sure on that but take it easy :)
