I have had sets of epidural shots twice for lower back pain and burning all down my left side due to worsening DDD over a 3 1/2 year period. I am in the midst of another bad period and have started another set of epidural shots because last time they did seem to offer some minor releaf. The first shot this time out only made my symptoms worse after a week. My neurologist has decided that in lieu of the epidural with flouroscope we will now try a "nerve block" instead for the second shot. Can anyone tell me what the difference is here, and do they have any positive feedback on this?
