Spinal stenosis. Spinal injections made it worse.

When did you have your injections? If the injection works for you..the pain often gets worse before it gets better, generally it can take a couple-few weeks to set in properly, sometimes it can take into 6 weeks for full benefit of the injection

Oh no, been over 6 months. It got worse. Left leg went limp and then the pain has never subsided.

Have you talked to your doctor about it?

He has gotten extremely defensive.

I recommend not getting anymore injections. I too had them done and more damage in my lower back and down my left leg was caused, it continues to worsen. Sorry about your pain. :/

They most likely hit a nerve which is why you're having more pain
