Steroids worked but short lived as I reduced intake of them. Surgery to open up the arthritis that had grown on my spine where nerves pass thru the bone structure on the left side, immediately gave me pain relief, Now the right side has started to give me the same type of problems, may seek same procedure for it. Completely relieves the pain. All other treatments prior were waste of time and money.
