Following my first and second lumbar epidural
steroid injections, I had symptoms (side
effects?) totally different from the underlying symptoms necessitating the procedures, a localized back irritation and buzzing and numbness, tingling, and weakness in my right foot and ankle. The new side effects (occurring mainly at night, or when I am fatigued) are a buzzing, throbbling, vibrating, electrical feelings in both legs with resulting exhausted and muscle soreness the next day.
