    I just have to share my good news with you!! I have been waiting since November for these Joint Injections..... I got my phone call last Friday, and I go in on July 18 & July 25. I have Degenerating Discs, in 2&3, 4&5 and my facet joints. so I am thinking nothing but "positive" thoughts here.... Something has to work, so I can live a somewhat "normal" life. Thanks for listening! Pain free days for everyone!

    Hi Debbie!

    Joint Injections are a type of cortosone injected into the joint..... Check it out on "Google" Advanced Search.... I have had chronic pain for almost 20yrs. I am 54yrs. old and sometimes feel like I am 80..... The DDD is taking over... you know what I mean. These "might" " a possibilty" decrease the pain! I had them done 15yrs. ago and I had "no pain" for 6wks. doesn't sound like very long... but for me it was a miracle!!! I will keep in touch and let you know how it goes?!.
