I had prolotherapy done on my lower back. The doctor hit my sciatic nerve. I ended up in the emergency room, laid on the floor for four days, got a blood clot in my leg and ended up getting a lumbar fusion. Just my experience.

Insurance did not cover injections but only the visit.
cost me around 225 bucks for 4 injections, 2 injections on each side of my face.
I had a wonderful experience with my first injections. When I went back for my second inj. 1 month later, I had a bit more pain, so I did not go back for my 3rd set of injections.
I was very much pain free for several months. After a year now I'm starting to get more pain. My pain could be from abx treatment trigering a herx.
My Dr. says some joints do better than others with prolotherapy. The TMJ area just happens to be one of the best joints to do prolo on.
I'm so glad I did it. I may do it on my neck/sholders later on if lyme treatment doesn't help with the pain.
Just to clarify. The injection experience was NOT wonderful but the freedom from pain was wonderful. Sorry... big needles just don't feel good no matter what. hth
