Having my first epidural

Sep 25, 2017 11:05 AM

So today is the day and I must admit I'm scared.. I'm tryi g all sorts of things to distract my mind but none really totally works.
Any advice or tips and trick on how to make this process easier and to help insure that I give the injection the best chance of working.

How are you doing? Sorry I have been unable to use internet for a while. With my disease I can never have a needle in my spine, so just worried about you.

Unfortunately not doing very well. I had the procedure and I haf about 4 days of moderate relief. The pain of the actual procedure and it's after math was worse then all the pain together.
Doctors want to do another round of injections and have have me focus on respecting my pain /activity limits.
I'm terrified honestly. They did not give me any sedation at all for this procedure so I was fully awake.
