Ive had 2 epidural injections of Steroids and pain medicine. One in Dec. and one in Jan. The relief only lasted about 1 day each time. I am going to a very good pain management Dr. here in Vegas. I am scheduled for my 3rd. injection March 9th. Hoping the 3rd. time is a charm and I get some relief. I have burning in my lower back if I stand more 10 minutes. I get relief when I sit down but this really limits what you are able to do. I have numbness in both feet and down my lower left leg. I have multiple problems so the Dr. says that it is harder to know where to put the injections to help me the most. Hoping for a good outcome next week. My husband got an epidural injection last week for sciatica pain and has been pain free ever since. I hope this review helps.
