Hello, I have recently had an epidural steroid injection in my L4-L5 region and since the injection I have had a severe burning aching sensation in both buttocks. It seems to get worse if I stand or walk for more than just a few minutes. Could I have nerve damage? What could be causing this? My Dr. Is ordering another MRI and said I may need another injection, I have also been referred to a spinal surgeon. Any ideas or help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi. I just read your post. I had an epidural steroid injection almost two years ago and approximately two days after the injection I had a burn in pain in my buttocks and legs. This pain has never gone away. I have had many tests including an MRI and everything comes back normal. Have you found any answers? Please get back with me if you can. I am searching for answers and trying to find a doctor who will help me.
