Numbness after steroid injection

As a skilled and experienced Pain Medicine Interventionalist, Dr. Levin evaluates each patient very thoroughly and carefully to help determine appropriate treatment options in order to provide the most effective individualized care.  These treatment options may include:  Lumbar, Thoracic and Cervical Epidural Steroid Injections utilizing targeted transforaminal techniques, Lumbar and Cervical Sympathetic Blocks, Sphenopalatine, Facial and Head and Neck Procedures, Discography, Percutaneuos Discectomy or Disc Decompression procedures, precision joint and nerve injections, Radiofrequency Neuroablative procedures, Peripheral or Spinal Cord Stimulator trials and implants, Foraminoplasties and several patented and patent pending advanced interventional procedures.

Fingertip eczema is a form of irritant contact dermatitis (or allergic contact dermatitis or atopic dermatitis); it may affect only the fingertips or the whole palm (hand dermatitis)  ( 30 ) .  Symptoms   ( 24,131; Picture 6 ) : The skin on one or more fingertips or a part of the palm becomes  hard and numb, then starts to peel in large, thick flakes; the fingertip becomes tender, cracked, red and painful, but not itchy, and then heals on its own;  the whole cycle can last 3-4 weeks and can keep occurring on the same or other finger.

What are the risks and side effects?
Generally speaking, transforaminal injections are is safe. However, with any procedure there are risks, side effects and possibility of complications. The most common side effect is pain from the actual injection once the local anesthetic wears off and this pain is temporary. The other uncommon risk involve spinal puncture with headaches, infection, bleeding inside the epidural space, nerve damage and worsening of symptoms. Other uncommon risks are related to the side effects of the long acting steroid such as weight gain, increase in blood sugar in diabetics, water retention and suppression of body's own natural production of steroids.

"Compression injuries occur when bones and ligaments [constrict] nerves in the arms and legs," says Robert Schwendimann, MD. "In the upper extremities, an injury to the medial nerve occurs most often at the wrist and affects the hands. Of course, this is known as carpal tunnel syndrome . In the lower extremities, injury to the peroneal nerve occurs most often at the knee and affects the feet. This is commonly known as footdrop." Schwendimann is the study author and assistant professor of neurology at Louisiana State University Medical Center in Shreveport.

The benefits from the first shot only lasted 2 weeks. The second and third set of injections lasted about 90 days. In November, I was ready to have surgery. My EMG and nerve conduction tests proved that the nerves were "sleeping" before I was. After another MRI, the neurosurgeon said I was a candidate for surgery but I was not able to get the endoscopic type surgery that is less invasive. I would have an incision about 6-8" long. Along with removing the herniation, they would have to increase the size of the hole where the nerve roots were going through.
