    thankfully my Fibro has not been giving me much trouble as of late-this is from coccydynia syndrom.
    You are very nice to respond-hope you are feeling better soon

    Hope you get some relief with the shot.
    I too don't have too many bouts with extreme pain (the ones I do have are enough) it is the exhaustion and the over all aching that gets me.

    I have the same pain. I got down on the floor to play a game the other night and could hardly get up! Tremendous pain in that area. I too am scheduled for an ESI - as a last resort. Not to thrilled about a needle in my back, but the Pain Management physician said it would really help, so good luck to both of us!!

    Just answered a post from Suekoo---please check it out. I had these last summer, not in my lower back, but in my cervical vertebrae, & they WERE helpful. I ended up having two---please read my answer to Suekoo's post & good luck tomorrow! I'm praying they help you, everyone's different with these things, but I'm still doing well a year later...

    Hugs,
    Pam

    Wasn't anywhere as bad as I thought it would be-actually was nothing to it.Was very sore last night,but Ice helped a lot.Today I can notice some improvement already-Dr. said it would be up to three days before It would take effect.
    I am very optomistic!!Good luck Suekoo-I to had my pain managment Dr. do mine-piece of cake!!!Lets just hope it lasts.

    I hope the relief lasts for you! Mine has been over a year now & I still feel pretty good. Sounds you had less soreness afterward than me---I felt very sore for 2-3 days, not at the sight of the injection (neck for me) but my whole upper back. But it was worth it, because my neck pain was so much better.

    Glad it was a good experience & you feel better.

    Hugs,
    Pam
