My neurosurgeon has ordered an epidural in C6 and C7 of my cervical spine, but most of my disc pain is in the thoraic spine, right between my shoulder blades (where I have a ruptured disc). I'm wondering why he didn't specify that the epidural be done there? Are thoraic spine epidurals not done, or was I not specific enough in telling him where the pain originates? I should be getting the epidural next week, and I really want to be sure it'll be done in an area where it will help me the most.
