Epidural & Cortisone Spine Injection Severe Leg Pain
I had an epidural cortisone injection to my spine on Tuesdayy. Today is Friday. I can't move my right leg without agonizing pain. The pressure is so intense as is the throbbing that Ii want to cut my leg off. I can't stand or walk at all let alone move or sleep but my doctor tells me this is normal. The pain grows worse by the hour & not even a Hydrocodone Acetominophen 10-325 & Aleve + extra Tylenol will touch this unbearable pain. I still have a Temperature of 100.5 even with all this medication but I'm not sure how much longer I can stand this. My pain doctor who gave me the injection tells me this is normal but I'm losing my mind trying to deal with this most dreadful pain. There's constant pressure & throbbing plus agonizing sharp pain when moving my leg. I can't walk right now and it feels like my leg is dying. It hurts so very much I've thought about cutting it off myself to escape this complete misery.
Is my doctor right that this is normal?
