Disappointed in the effect of th injection I received. No change in my pain level. Did I receive a placebo injection?

Dr. Malizzo is a very fine Doctor and always questions me about previous injections and how they had effect on my condition. Always asks how I am doing and where the pain is. He is GREAT.
