In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
Sarrah, I've had facet nerve blocks, and trigger point injections - and have gotten horrible headaches following both. But they were all in the cervical/occipital region...(not low back). But it would make sense (to me, at least!) that you could get a horrible headache after such a procedure.
I really hope you feel better. --Tina
Hi, if they injected the needle into the epidural space, it could be a dural puncture. Is your headache better when you lay down...and worse while sitting or standing upright? If so, then chances are that's what it may be, as this is a classic sign of a dural puncture.
It happens when the puncture in the spinal sac doesn't seal itself off after an injection. Therefore spinal fluid leaks out and lowers the spinal fluid pressure inside the brain, which then can cause a horrible headache. It's not that common of an occurence, though. Usually a blood patch would be done to treat it.
I personally have had lots of ESI's, nerve blocks, but luckily never suffered from a dural puncture.
