I felt the whole unpleasant procedure and now (next day) I'm in worse pain than I was before it. I called the doctors and left messages... no ones called me back. ugh! I have a pretty strong pain tolerance too. It was for a bulging disc... s1 and lots of nerve damage. Ironically I swear this injection undid all the progress I had made at PT and on the topamax... I've got a nasty migraine that won't go away either. This really sucks! Any advice?
Hi. I'm sorry that you haven't gotten relief from your epidural for your back. I get those done and in my experience anyway it takes about 5 to 7 days for it to help my pain. I don't know if this is your first one but that's pretty normal for it to take that long. I know it's hard but hang in there!! I hope you feel better really soon!!

Is it fairly normal for a doctor to put a person on three different prescriptions to treat migraine?
