Hello.
I am trying to find information online about why my doctor at the pain management center gave me a shot of cortisone directly to the sciatic nerve. I came up off the table, it was the most painful experience of my life.
Since he gave me this shot last monday, my sciatic pain has become constant, radiating UP my back as well as down my leg. When I rubbed the area to to try and relieve some pain, my leg went numb from the knee down.

What has happened? Will this go away?
