    I have been keeping a pain diary. The injections were at 830AM and at 8:25PM I did have A groin episode (pain level 5-6). Since then its been quiet. My doctor said it takes some time for the meds to work.

    Thank you so much for your guidance..steve

    I am confused. Did you have two separate injections in two different areas? What injections did you have and what were the immediate results (first three hours)? “Taking time for the medications to work” has nothing to do with the diagnostic portion of the injections. Again see Pain Diary on the website and read https://neckandback.com/treatments/diagnostic-vs-therapeutic-injections/.

    Hi

    I had bilateral l3, l4 injections. The injections were early morning and except for being quite sore, no groin pain. However, at 825pm I had one episode. As of this post, all has been quiet. Actually more comfortable. Sorry for the confusion.

    Hi Dr Corenman

    As of 6:39am, est, no groin pain. This is the first time in a month that the pain has been quiet.

    What was your groin pain level (0-10) before the injection? Did the pain abate after the injection for about three hours?

    My groin pain level was 10+(no exaggerating). The pain abated after 3 hours, though I had one attack (say 5 pain level) that was less intense and for a shorter period. My other symptoms continue, but thank goodness this has quieted down.

    Thank you

    Steve
