I have had problems with my back for a long time and have spinal stenosis. Years ago I tried nerve block and that seemed to work the best. Since moving I am having a hard time finding a doctor that can help my condition. Lately, I have pain in my left shoulder and right knee. I have had cortisone shots in the knee that helps. Hopefully my primary care doctor can inject the shoulder when I go in a couple weeks.
