Hi I'm a newbee to this site.
had this dreaded illness 10yrs now,
can anyone help, years ago due to the pain of fibro I was offered them pain relief injections, I had them about 3 times, didn't really help much.
but last time I had it done (7yrs ago) the doctor had hard job putting needle in my lower back left side dimple (hope that makes sense)
it took her 15mins, I was in tears an nurses told her to stop, she didn't, she finely done it an after being wheeled back to day ward in tears, a few mins after I couldn't feel my left leg, in a panic I pressed button nurse came then got doctor to check, she told me oh gave you a bigger dosage your be ok, I couldn't walk. Told to get a wheel chair an go to A&E...
well move forward ever since the pain in my lower back never went but has always been bad, to point that if I could reach with an electric drill I would frigging kill the pain that way. It's constant and like I've got someone pushing a pointed object in it. I'm sure she done damage, I've begged my gp to refer me for tests as this pain is not right, but all he says is to have more injections, yeah like I'm gona do that. Also I have fallen over lots of times, my left leg goes numb an without warning over I go. Last time I was crossing a very quite road (lucky for me) down I went contents of my handbag rolling down the road.
Anyway can anyone tell me have you had them injections if so did it make you worse
