Had my 1st injection last Thursday. I still feeling the pain, stiffness, tingling & numbess from my neck to to fingers. Has anyone had success with these injections? If so, did the 1st one work or did it take more than one for it to finally work? I'm so drained & just can't function. My next ortho appt is next Wed. The thought of continuing to feel this bad is overwhelming. Do I wait it out, or should I call the ortho doc & tell him it feels like its getting worse, especially the muscle weakness. Thanks for the replies in advance, God Bless
