Reason: back pain/damage to multiple areas of disc/vertib. Date: 29 April 2009
Side Effects
Hyperactivity/insomnia/depression/anxiety/mood swings/strange thoughts and behavior, all varying in intensity and lasting about 10 days.

Additional Thoughts
I have a bad back with surgery not an option. Have gotten approx. 15 injections over past 4 years. Helpfulness of pain ranges from very little to miraculous with most lasting around 4-6 weeks. Would love to know if anyone else has severe mental issues as my doctors don't understand what I go through,not to mention what the people around me put up with. I take many pain pills and when they stop working the injections are my only source of pain reduction.
