Hi! So I had my second CESI (my first was right before xmas) this past Thursday evening and had a mild spinal headache the next morning that went away pretty quickly and had the first time ever relief from the lidocaine I guess but that didn't really start until mid Friday and ended abruptly Sat early evening. At that point my neck and shoulders started hurting again and with the addition of a massive headache that I have had since (now 6 days b/c its Thurs). I talked to the nurse on Tues about it and she said Dr said to take muscle relaxers and I said gee I take those daily at night just to exist the next day but I cannot take that and work and there was no further help. I called them back today to tell them I still have a headache and especially when I tilt my head back it explodes but eases when I lay down with an ice pack around my neck. She said Dr said headaches are not his specialty but they will set me up for a new MRI to see if something new is going on since my last a year ago ( I had 2 level ACDF Dec 2015) umm lady I didn't have headaches at all until this injection. I am just floored that they are not wondering like I am if hey maybe she needs a blood patch? Stupid Dr! All he could say is we don't need to do another injection b/c they are not helping....like you would get me in there to do another one in the first place. Other than that, I have just been in more discomfort all around that I was not in before the injection and the injection spot is painful also still. In the past, I was sore for a day or two at the spot and in the general area and it eased but not the case this time. What are your experiences?
