I had facet injections yesterday and a sacroiliac injection two days ago, my face still feels like is burning but now my arms do as well and I am feeling sick to my stomach I never felt like this the other two times I had the same injections. Any ideas how or why this is going on. I did call my doctor and he told me it is a normal reaction but to call back if it keeps up. I did not get to call him today. I am calling in the morning just wondered if any one had ever had this problem.


  • can cause a variety of side effects or reactions. Most of these are self-limiting, but some can cause problems, such as increasing your blood pressure, blood sugar, or swelling around the neck. If you have high blood pressure or diabetes going into an injection, you need to monitor each fairly frequently after the procedure.

    Hope that the symptoms get better, but let us know what your doctor says tomorrow.

    Good luck,

  • I will let you know. I got some of the burning to go away with a alcohol bath, and some aloe. It is spreading downward. One of the strangest things ever.
