I have had several cervical epidurals with good relief of pain. I am scheduled for a thorastic epidural next month. I've had four cervical spinal surgeries and have lots of headaches and pain. Just ate up with arthritis and degenerative disc disease. I hope this epidural works as well so that maybe I can start driving again. Right now everytime I drive I want to vomit. Isn't life grand?
Hope things go well for you.

I had a series of three epidural injections, with no difference at all. A friend told me before I had them that they would make you lower back much weaker after you had them and she was right. I also had a doctor that did "blind shots", which means he just aims and shoots.....I was not under an xrax machine or anything to show him where the needle was located.
The second shot I received....the doctor asked.......can you feel that in your left leg and I said yes.........all the way down to my toes and he said OOPS.....I need to move over a little bit.
Well.............needless to say.....I freaked out.
My advice (but it is totally up to you) is DON'T HAVE THEM if there is any way out of it.
Best of Luck
