I've had epidural injections, facet joint injections, Nerve burning, block injections, all which do help for a short period of time. I take gabapentin, Tizazidine, and percocet daily. I also take acetametaphin 2000 mgs at bedtime. This combination of meds do help my pain level for a short period of time.
