Hi Brooke,

I'm new to the message boards. I'm having a nerve block next week? I've had many facet injections without any sedation. Does the nerve block feel the same or is it different? Two weeks ago I had a discogram after having had chronic pain for 8 years. I got steroid injections every 3 or 4 months for the inflamation. The discogram revealed the mystery. I have two torn discs, L5 and L4 and the doctor feels the bottom disc is giving me all the joint pain. I hope I don't have to have a fusion. For now, I'm getting 2 nerve blocks followed by a rhizotomy where they will burn my nerves around my joints. I made it through the discogram, so the doctor said this nerve block wouldn't be painful. I do get sedation this time. Thanks for reading my story. Tell me yours. Pam
