Physical therapy years ago. Problems worsened with PT. Had epidural twice and was pain free for 6 years. Pain started up almost 3 years ago. I've had 2 epidurals and a nerve block in the last year with no pain relief. If I do nothing, I have no pain. If I do anything, I have to do a little, sit down, do a little and sit down. I have pain radiation down right front leg which goes numb.
