    The BEST of LUCK to you. Injections can make a big difference for some...let's know that you will be one of the some!! I just had an epidural on 2/6. I was frightened and it was a positive experience with very minimal pain.

    Take Care,

    i have had 2 sets of facet joint injections using a flouroscope and they were a little painful but they did work

    i fianally had togo on and have them burn the ends of the nerves with radiowaves ( i forget what the procedure is called) but that has taken 90% of the pain away and the Doc said that it could last up to 6 months so good luck !!!

    Thanks for all the encouragement!!! It was a go with the Dr.so now I just wait for the call to go in!!!He says it could take less then a month... that is encouraging.... I live in Canada, and the waits are unbelievable!! But it is so encouraging to hear that other people have had some success with this! In July I have an appt. with another Specialist.... they will look into deadening the nerves. I know I won't be able to run a marathon, but would like to have some of my life back. Which I know alot of you know what I'm talking about. Hugs to all!
