First I tried the meds to help me deal with my spinal stenosis located in my lower back. I really wasn't happy with taking medication twice a day everyday. So I then decided to take the shots. As for the shots I did get immediate relief. But the relief from the shots don't last long in my case. They only give three shots every six months. I will admit I am not my old healthy self, but I do appreciate some of the relief the shots provide. My pain relief has only so far has lasted about a month. But I am considering surgery.
