I have had a massive reaction to Botox injections for migrains
Hi has anyone had radio frequency to their facet/sacroiliac joints please ? I usually have Injections but the pain team are wanting to try this procedure where they burn the nerve root ends I know they gradually grown back but this is supposed to give better results the injections are so painful I am rather scared to have this for the pain is supposed to be worse can anyone reassure me please? Thanks in advance Tina Xx
I had this injection just the once but it did not work. Why is it done to the surgeon? I do agree I had to wait all day for the injection (Got to hospital by 7.30 went into theatre 4.30 then it didn't work!)
I was told that it releases the muscles and that is why they use it on peoples faces because it releases the muscles that cause wrinkles.
May have worked better on them than on my leg! LOL

I have been assessed at the pain clinic as a candidate for spinal steroid injections every six months. I have severe spinal stenosis on several levels in my lumbar spine.
Has anyone had these injections, and if yes, what are some of the side affects and also what are the positives?....I'm seeking a balanced picture.
Any information will be extremely appreciated!
