Default Injection

Going to have an injection in the morning in my lumbar, lower back, Have had several in my neck and hope this helps the burning in my legs. Don't know why, but this one has me worried. Oh well. Hope to get some relief so I can get back to some fishing.

Anyone had this before and if so any relief?

Sometimes they work well and sometimes they don't. I got an epidural back in March and it's held up good so far. The couple before that sucked, tho. Good luck with yours.

I have a herniated disc in my back and I get steroid injections when it really starts getting bad which is about twice a year. Trust me when it gets to hurting that bad you don't even feel the pain of the shots and it is instant relief. I feel like I am a teenager again!

The doctors in Lake Charles couldn't help me, but I found one in Houston that gave me injections for 5 or 6 years. Worked for 2 to 3 months at a time, then the disk ruptured. Had to have surgery after that.
If you want the Dr.'s name, let me know. He did several different minor things to help out over the years.
I had some nerves ablated and had some kind of shocking maching installed internally and then the shots. All worked well for a certain amount of time, but none of them could work for a long long time.
My problems started in 1992 and lasted until the surgery in 2009.

I have had 14 shots from epidurals to facet injects to spinal blocks all in the last 3 years. I never got one minute of relief from any of them. I will be getting a discogram on the 14th and will be getting an XLIF fusion in the next few months. It is supposed to be only 14 day recovery and it is my last resort. Good luck and I hope that you get better soon.

I had the steroid injections in my back and they worked for a month the first time and then two weeks and then I said the hell with it a had lumbar fusion of L3 and 4. Good luck man I know what you are going threw and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. When your legs start feeling like they are sleeping and when your toes burn life sucks.

Unfortunately am getting there quick. Some numbness in toes now. The freaking burning in the thigh keeps me up at night.

Have experience with the injections. I have had for neck fusions. Tried the epidurals for this both pre and post surgeries with very limited relief.

Praying I get some relief with the lumbar injections. Trying to target the thigh issue right now. Had one about a month ago for the pain and it has given me limited relief.

thanks for all the info/suggestions.

By the way, the neuro I am seeing is Dr. Wolf in LC. He is the only one I would let cut on me here.

Yeah I left out the pain in the thigh which for me was right about where you put your wallet in your back pocket. Just don't take the pain killers unless you absolutely have no choice. I have a number of friends who have gotten addicted to them. I was on hydrocodone and oxycodone at the same time at night to sleep. Also stay away from alchol while taking the pain meds are you will be on cloud nine quickly as I learned from one 24 ounce beer and a painkiller. I asked my gf at the time what in the world is going on and she reminded me that I had taken a pain pill about an hour before drinking that beer. If you need any advice let me know as I have been threw it all. Thank god I found a wonderful doctor in Dr. Louis Blanda in Lafayette. I have no pain on most days now and just a little when the weather changes. A word of advice is to not let it go on to long or the nerve damage could become permanent.

Unforunately with the neck issues I have been on pain meds for about 4 years. good days are one pill and bad are four.

I have permenant spinal cord damage at C 5-7 for waiting too long for my first surgery and the doc in Houston told the wife I was very fortunate I was not in a wheel chair.

Amazing how many people have these issues when you start talking about them.
