Called the pain doc & he basically said he didn't know why I was feeling bad, maybe the flu? he said. Anyway, said if it was really bad go the the ER. I'm not going to the er, its the pain, numbness, tingling & weakness thats continuing even with the injection. I guess I just have to wait it out till I see the orthor doc next wed. UHHHHH. He also said it can take 2 weeks for the injection to work.
