I had one yesterday (sacroiliitis).  I was just wondering how long it takes for them to kick in and how long you had relief.

I have had several epidurals and it should take about a week for you to start to feel the full effect. I am always sore for about 5 days after each one but then they seem to kick in. From time to time I get one that works right away but i get them in several different places along with trigger point injections.

What injection? Steroid? I had that...........it was probably about a month maybe more before things eased up - I can't honestly say I know if it was the steroid that helped or the fact that I started swimming everyday though.

Yes, it was a steroid injection.  I am supposed to see the dr again in 1 week for a re-check so I was hoping it would work sooner!  Thanks.
