I had eight facet joint injections last week.  I took off work thursday and friday and then had the weekend.  But I was working again Monday.  The doctor said it would be fine.  I have a daycare and work ten hours a day with toddlers and preschoolers.  Well, I hurt worse every day instead of better.  I am not sure if the fibromyalgia makes the recovery more difficult or something?  Last night it was so bad that I took my hydrocodone, my muscle relaxer, my anti-inflamatory, altertanted heat and ice, and still no relief.  I could barely move.  Is this normal?  Does it just take longer for us?  Other people seem to do just fine after this procedure but that is not the case with me.

I had the same issue after my facet injections.....the doc told me I'd be fine and they ended up having to give me a stronger pain killer for a week while i recovered....I dont know if it's b/c of the fibro or not but i suspect it was. Hang in does get better!! Good luck!
