I have herniated disc at L4, L5, S1 and T12 and arthritis in my back. Had surgery done a few years ago and it worked for almost a month and then started hurting again but not so bad but now it's pain running into both my sides and down both my legs. Nothing helps except my pain medicine Norco gives a little relief for a short period. Had injection done years back before surgery and it worked for the first 3 to 5 days then stopped working and the injection hurt really bad now they want to try another injection.
