I too have had epidural steroid injections to no avail. The first one did nothing for my backache and the numbness and tingling I was having in my left leg and foot. The doctor said I needed another one. I was put to sleep and when I woke up my left foot was totally numb but I had extreme pain in it. The nurse kept trying to get me up and have me put my weight on it but I literally could not feel my foot and would start to go down. This lasted almost an hour. As soon as I had a little feeling in my foot they were wheeling me out of there. I had bladder spasms for two days afterward and sat in my recliner for two weeks with a heating pad wrapped around my foot because it felt like ice. I am worse now than when I first when in. Both feet hurt, my calves are tight, I feel like I have a knot on the ball of my foot and the whole top of my thigh on my right leg burns. I went back and he wanted to do a third injection but he couldn't tell me why I was having all the pain and burning . I told him no thank you and haven't been back. I just don't know who to go to now. :(

I feel for all of you out there suffering and hope you will all find relief some day.... :)
