Extra pain after nerve pain injection

SpursboySpursboy Member Posts: 6 Listener
I have had severe back and leg pain plus numb feet for nearly three years, which stops me walking. Four weeks ago I had a Root Block Injection which has enabled me to get back to walking again with no pain down my right leg.
BUT – since the injection I now have a very severe painful ache from my shoulder blades down to my lower back, this is something new, very painful all the time and tends to make sleeping difficult.
Could this be caused by the Root Block I wonder?

    Welcome to the community @Spursboy! I'm glad it has enabled you to walk again, yet it cannot be nice to now be experiencing this extra pain.

    Have you spoken to your doctor about this? We aren't medically trained so are not qualified to say what is causing your pain, but I hope you'll be able to find others who can relate.

    Please do let us know how you get on and I hope you are able to start sleeping properly again soon!

    Hi @Spursboy

    Sorry to hear about your problems. I would recommend you to go and see Dr in your GP and ask to be referred also to osteopathic clinic. Perhaps seeing osteopath would help you as a bit of joint manipulation could revise the tension from muscles and which are probably tight enough and press somewhere on the nerve now. 
    Hope you will fee better soon.
