Sacroiliac joint injection was terrible, do you have the same experience ?

I only let the doctor inject the left side which was very sour but it was so painful which I couldn't tolerate the right side.

I had left an right side done yesterday. First one was by surprise so I flinched. it hurt and hit a nerve. So after, my leg hurt really bad down the back left leg. But I went through today without intense pain and no Charlie horse on left side of back. Using my new back brace I was up most of the day. My muscles are very tired, from non use and my left sacral is hurting but not worth crying about. I am happy for this normal day, at least normal for me. Looks like sacral surgery is not an option for me till my insurance approves it after January. I have blue cross and they see this type of surgery as experimental. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. But looking forward to january. Then maybe I can get my right hip replaced. I was told that my left hip was a success, but am left with capsulitis, so still have inflammatory pain. Anyway, the injection was worth it, even if it is only for a few days.
