I've been having frequent siatic nerve pain in my lower back, which sends aching pains down my hips, thru the back of my legs, furthermore, leading to my feet and having a tingling sensation. I have read several different reviews about this shot and am scared of getting it, but am in dire need of relief. I have had this shot in the past for a migraine, which made my head burn. Any suggestions/recommendations for getting the shot or comfort without it?
Toradol is a wonderful medication for pain. Some say it works as well as or better than morphine but toradol is a strong NSAID, it is not an opioid (or narcotic) medication. I think you should definitely try it!
I have been give the Toradol injection several times for inflammation. It works better on bone/joint and some nerve pain. It did help with my sciatica. You should at least try it.
I have had several Toradol shots for my siatic nerve pain and found that it didn't do much for helping my pain. Maybe a few hours of slight relief. But we are all different, it may help you a lot. It's worth a try and if you get no relief you can always tell them you don't want more of them. I don't think it's that strong so maybe it will help you without side affects, I hope so.
Let me know how it went if you do get one. I never had side affects from Toradol but we are all different as to how we react to different meds.
Hope it helps you.
I was givin a toradol shot after my last procedure Radio Frequency Ablation and it didnt help easing any of my pain from the procedure or the normal nerve pain I suffer, not one bit ..
I've had the Toradol shots as well. Didn't touch me an hour after having it done they had to give me shot of Dilaudid. But it may work for you. Everyone's body reaponds to medications differently. So i would give it a try. And if no help in pain relief please don't be afraid to tell them so. God bless and hope it works out for you. Please let us know how it went. Mickey
I had a bulging disc in my neck. It was pinching a nerve going down my arm. A shot of toradol was the best thing for it. I felt absolutely no pain for twelve hours. Problem is you can only have three shots a month.
