Hi, I am new to this site but have had back operations and injections over the past 6 years. Unfortunately I had a stroke 3 days after my last set of cervical injections. I had never been told that this was a risk but have taken it on the chin as one of those things until I saw the pain specialist yesterday. He had been notified what had happened and had all the results from my scans and reports on the stroke, he welcomed me by saying I hear you have had a funny turn since the last time we spoke. Has any one else had any side affects such as a stroke as the pain consultant said it would be very unlikely that the injections would cause a stroke but I have found leaflets from other hospitals that say this can happen in rare cases. I don't see how he got all the information as well unless he was tipped off by one of his collegues I went to see about the scan results as no one else would send him the information automatically like they would my Gp.
