Has anyone had trigger point injections into their back and if so how where u after wards
It is now the very early hours of Friday and I had the injections on Tuesday. My pain levels are now higher than before and I am needing to take a whole lot more of Oramorph than I usually do. I know so far this is what I was told would happen and I am waiting for the improving days to start
My problem is, when I had the jab, while in recovery and on day ward I just could not wake up. I had really low stats at times and was told to breathe more deeply, but I was out of it. I had had 2mg of sedation which I was told was a very small amount.
I finally left the ward about four hours after every one else. I was in a lot of pain on the Wednesday but awake then today. I got up to answer the door at around 9.30 am and sat down on settee. The next thing I remember is my daughter telling me she was going out driving at 2.30pm. I think I layed down as I had been sitting up all that time. The next thing was getting presents from my daughter, which was lovely and then u guessed it I was straight back to sleep. I finally woke up at around 7 pm. I was in pain and thirsty .
I am going to bed now and taking all my tablets and Oramorph and yes I am tried. Is this sleeepiness normal after having this done. The injection site looks fine but very swollen and i think I have a temp ( which I did have last night) and am bright red all over and look horrible . Am also bringing up sick ( sorry maybe too much information )
Is this normal , if so does anyone know how long this strange things are going to keep happening as I am a bit worried. Any advice, or views would be so welcome. I don't really know who I should be asking about this.
Thanks in advance and thanks for reading what turned out to be a very long question.
Thanks and wishes you all soft hugs (((((xxx)))))
