Hi All,
I have another question.  I had a epidural steroid injection about 10 days ago in my lumbar spine and the weird thing is that my right foot hasn't had nearly the spasticity in it that it normally does.  The injection did not help my lower back pain though!
Does anyone know if this is possible, that the steroids actually helped with the spasticity?  I'm just trying to figure it all out, or does it mean that it isn't spasticity at all?

Hi Michelle,

I'm so sorry the injection didn't help your back sad I was hoping it would help give you some relief. Normally Mike's spasticity is not bad enough to be on medication daily, but there are occassions when the pain gets intense from it and low dose predisone really does help. Hope this answered your question and you find something to help your back pain too!
