    Have second cervical epidural injection scheduled for this coming THursday. Pain management specialist says he is trying to safe me from surgery on my neck. Anyone else go through this? I'm sick of coming up with med co-pays. He says my neck spinal is deteriorating. I wonder what will happen if I just don't do anything about it. I've already limited feeling in my right hand. Maybe it won't get any worse.

    I had these done years ago. I'm going to get them done again, hopefully, in the new year once my health insurance change over.

    Did the first shot help you at all? If it did, I'd say go for another. That's what I did.

    I also had an epidural in my lumbar spine, but that was horrible!! The pain was unbearable, it made my back much worse. I did have two surgeries on my lumbar spine, but so far I've been able to ward off any operations on my cervical spine -- it's pretty bad too. I have at least 3 bulging disks.

    Thanks for your responses. I think I will go into my prayer closet and pray on this.
    God bless you all!
