Following two cervical epidural steroid injections and a blood patch, I broke out in a rash the size of a dinner plate around the injection site. I feel like my spine and brain are burning, I have burning pain down both arms,, down my neck and on my torso. My tongue is sore and my lips and nostrils are burning. A trip to the er and 50 mg of prednisone made me feel crazy. I am about two weeks post blood patch. While the redness is gone around the injection site, I still have horrible burning in my spine and head. My neurologist just shrugged his shoulders and said huh". like he didn't believe me. Pease help.
