I have had a lumbar/caudal epi. and so far as I know (least I haven't heard of any) there are no side affects. It basically works about the same as a nerve block, its just putting pain medication where the worst of the pain is. There is usually three to four rounds of treatment and then your good to go for six months to a year. Everyone is different, a nerve block works best for me.
