Customer Question
I had 9 epidural...

I had 9 epidural steroid injections 6 days ago. Since then I have not noticed a change in pain. My concern is, taking into account I am very feeble and weak, I fainted last night. Can ESIs cause fainting?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I do have a thoracic injury due to a snowboarding accident\t. I ended up having a costctransversectomy of T8-9 after suffering severe back pain for two years. All imaging reports have noted I do havedegenerative disc disease , Which I’m sure 50% of people in the country,and for several years, I have Had pain in my leg and foot from a pinched nerve at L4 To S one. Six days ago I had 3 thoracic ESIs and 6 ESIs from L4/ S1. This is the first time of many that I did not feel any relief from the injection’s. Quite the contrary, I have had increased back pain, Now I am painting

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Now I am fainting, sorry

Epidural injections should not cause fainting but can cause bleeding which will lower blood pressure and cause fainting. The increased back pain and panting may also indicate a perforated lung. May I suggest you seek immediate medical attention either in an ER or Urgent Care Center. They will contact your doctor.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?
