[QUOTE=dennfore]I am very torn on the issue of epidural injection into my back. I live in constant pain, due in part to one ruptured disk and one bulging disk, but to a greater extent due to Fibromyalgia. Could some of you share your success/failure stories? From all I have been told, it is likely that it may not even help, so why bother to put yourself through the pain of the procedure? Help, please!!!![/QUOTE]
hi there,, I had my 1st one lst fiday & have another one scheduled for next frid.[the 27]...
the day OF the injection went better than I tought it would...BUT when I woke up the next day I was in so much pain that I almost had my hubby take me to the ER...[mine was in the spine L5-S1 area]...
even though I have seen no difference in my pain they have told me I probably wouldn;t till the 2nd one...so I am crossing my fingers that next week will show some difference & I wonlt have that pain the next day likie I did the last time...
sorry if this sounds negative BUT like you said what do we have to lose ...maybe this WILL help ...
wolebearsnc :D
Hi Dennfore.
I posted a week or so ago but haven't been able to get back on since.
I go back to Specialist on 2nd April and it is decision day for me too!
The last thing left to try is Facet/Steroid injections.
He said when I couldn't stand it anymore then we would have to try them or a Discogram (NO WAY TO THAT - sounds like Medival Torture!)
THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS WORLD THAT SCARES ME MORE ----NOTHING!!!!
I am already having sleepless nights worrying about it.
I am so scared as I had an Steriod Epidural injection 7 yrs ago and it made me so much worse - but then, it was no with no X-rays etc.
My mum has been for the new kind and she said she would give me 100 if I found it terrible - she promises it wont be.
BUT...........I'm still so scared.
I will not sleep for weeks if I know I am having it done and I will work myself into such a state they will end up chasing me as I run out / or tying me down.
Can't explain how scared I am.
It sound great if it works.......BUT.....if it doesn't , and I get worse than now, my life will be totally pointless to me.
I really dont know what to do either......I so feel for you.
I am in the UK.........where are you??????

Today is the second, right? Did you get the shot? What was the outcome of your visit?

Did you read that report? The Burton report?

There is something else that you should read, about common pain. I am not sure how to point you in the right direction w/o posting the web site which I can't do.

You'll find it if you surf. It talks about pain and the receptors and how everything works and how we really have not come far enough in the world of medicine to do much more than address lessening the pain to a point that is barely tolerable.
