Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
you most likely had a steroid injection into or around the medial branch nerves of the spine.
sometimes the steroids get absorb systemically
and can cause poor sleep and increased appetite and weight gain
you need to watch what you are eating
and avoid napping during the day to sleep better at night time
exercise during the day can help you sleep better at night.
most likely the steroids will be out of your system in 1-2 weeks.
