I have multiple issues going on (details in my bio I believe) and have had 2 series of epidural spinal injections plus 2 series of facet joint injections. Now am moving on to "diagnostic injections" to see if burning the nerve roots (Rhizotomy?) would be a good choice for me.
I am sick of being in pain. My boss is on my back about missing work and I am barely putting one foot in front of the other. They don't like me taking any time off for these injections and scans, but what can I do? If I don't get the pain under control, I cannot continue to work.
So, if you've had the procedure, I'd love to hear about it!
