Shot went wrong

I to have had the shots in my back, on the fifth one knew something went wrong body jumped with pain and head hurt so bad, doctor started yelling for stuff from nurse kept asking if I was ok but never said anything happened, after a couple of months legs started hurting so bad I couldn’t stand to walk in the morning and legs hurt so bad all night. Well after I kept saying my legs hurt he said, you know I wake up thinking of back surgery that is what I do, don’t think I can help you anymore and sent me on my way stopping my pain meds. Finally went to my reg doctor and got back on pain meds. It is horrible trying to sleep at night, legs hurt so bad now when they didn’t before the shot. I have burning, tingling, numbness, twitching, bad pain and sensitivity to touch all on count of shots, still on pain meds, but wish now I would never had done them. So painful to walk most days and sleeping all night, I hate it. Doctor keeps trying new meds to help with twitching and pain at night, I need relief.

  1. I have not read any of the comments left by others on his topic, but it sounds to me as if you might have developed Arachnoiditis from the epidural gone wrong. No, I am not a doctor, and don’t claim to be one, but I am someone who suffers from this awful disease due to a spinal procedure gone wrong. It took me years before I found a doctor willing to diagnose this debilitating illness. Dr. Antonio Aldrete, a well-known doctor in the study of this disease, spent 10 hours with me, doing physical exams, pouring over x-rays, MRI’s, and CAT scans, along with other medical data from my many epidurals, and other medical procedures. He showed me the problem areas and what they meant to me physically. He went through each step of this disease, the progression, and what I could expect long-term. Yes, the diagnosis was not what I wanted to hear, but it did give me answers, which helped me understand, if for no other reason. I don’t know if he is still practicing, as he was advanced in age, but I am sure there are other specialists in this disease. I wish you the best, and hope you find the answers you seek concerning your pain. I understand what you are saying about pain and how your world is turned upside down from it. I live it each day, therefore I care!!!
