Hello Red. I took the spinal injections for several years, I think 3 to be exact. I finally got to a point where I was having them farther and farther apart and then finally stopped all together. It seemed to "toughen up" up my spine or something. I have bulges and degeneration in C-6 and C-7 from an altercation with a horse. Ha! The horse won, but I haven't told him. The epideurals were a miracle for me and I've never regretted having them. I know that for about a week after having one I would have a little trouble sleeping and I would have hot flashes from "you know where". But overall they worked great for me and I don't walk like a question mark anymore. Where I had them done was in the ambulatory surgery part of my ortho's office. They would put "happy medicine" in my IV and then the injection and home I went, never remembering a thing. I know everyone doesn't have a successful outcome with these but I did.
Good luck! Boo
that CRS you have, down here we call it KRAFT, Kan't Remember A ******* Thing.(ok so the spelling ain't perfect). As per the steroid injections, my Rheumy will only give them a few times a year. Says too many are hard on the ticker (heart).
