I've been getting steroid injections for lumbar spine issues for a few years now. Do they help? Not really. Once in a rare while I feel my pain decreases for a few days... And that's it. Recently tried a more direct location in a particular area, but no luck. I actually felt worse. My doctor keeps offering them, so I take them, figuring maybe one of them will work at some point so why not? Plus I figure it looks like I am willing to try... But overall- is it worth it? Could so many injections cause a build up of scar tissue or cause any damage?
