Trigger Injections

dilaurodilauro ConnecticutPosts: 129
Adding to my list of spinal problems, I have been diagnose via MRI and clinical examinations, including blood work:

Gout in my foot
Severe degenerative osteoarthritis in my left toe
Moderator  trigger thumb movement
A lot of degenerative osteoarthritis in my hand


So I had two injections today.   Called them trigger points, but not like the typical spinal trigger point.

These had lidocaine for numbing, but also contained steroids.  So, my hand and foot are still numb from the freezing solution.
Wait to see how they feel tomorrow.

    Dilauro, you are suffering from what kind of
    spinal problems?

    Keith,
    I have had 5 Lumbar and 2 cervical surgeries, plus having both of my shoulders and hips totally replaced with implants, and a Reconstruction Achilles tendon surgery.

    I have arhtritis up and down my spine plus arthritis in many other areas.

  • Are'nt there any alternative for injection ? Just hate it
  • That sounds so painful, even more painful than the pain itself, I am curious after the numbing goes away, what is the result and if positive, for how long it will last, I mean are these painful injections worth it?

    welcome to arthritis-health

    i also have had trigger point injections up and down my spine. i do not find them painful at all. a lot of people get relief from these injections especially if this is a lot of inflammation.
    below is a link to a very informative article from our library.
