I would think that maybe a new set of eyes would be appropriate to look at the history, physical examination, images and results of current diagnostic testing.

If the block is going to be repeated at a very different spot in the spine that has been spotted as a possible source of pain (nerve compression), then maybe the block might be diagnostically helpful. If however, the block is in the same general vicinity as the initial epidural injection, why would you expect a different response than the initial failed injection?
