Onmynerves, I'm glad you have improvement. Between 2011-2013, I went through ESI's at 3 different levels in my spine over a 2 year period. I lost actual count but it was around a total of 16-20 injx over the 24 mos. I had several iinjx that didn't work as well and required a follow up sooner than planned, but overall I had very good results. The most painful injx was a facet block, which I hope to never repeat! I was diagnosed with osteopenia 5 years ago and can no longer get injx. I remained nearly pain free (in the spine only) until last year when I slipped and fell on on our tiled kitchen floor. Luckily my sciatica comes and goes and has been manageable. Hugs love & prayers that you continue to have good results. 🙂💞❤🙏🌷

Warning, they are not approved for spinal use. Fda requires now to begiven warning paper work to read before use. Dr Oz did a show on them and you can look up medical papers on the problems with using the meds off label. Glad they seem to help, hope they don't cause further issues w your spinal fluid or the spinal dura.

Zetarlov, I wasn't given any paperwork of the warnings when mine were done. I've had 2 doctors who feel they led me into osteopenia because of the side effects, but I've been learning my family genetics plays a huge role in most of my health issues. I'm just thankful I had good relief. If I could redo some medical treatment choices I would. Oh well, live & learn as the saying goes.
