Am considering an epidural. Constant pain in lumbar area due to spinal stenosis. Now, experienceing tingling and numbness in both legs and feet if I stand for over 15 minutes. Sciatica is unbearable at times. This coupled with the RA has me exhausted most of the time, but continue to push myself.
Has anyone had an epidural for spinal stenosis. My next visit with my Rheumy is April 27, 2009. Researching and speaking to people who have had this for spinal stenosis. Interested to know how much and how long was the relief you might have experienced from an epidural for this condition. Pretty much decided to try it as am in need of some relief. Have had this for about 5 years now. Seems to ge worse, even with the meds that help with the RA.
Happy to share my experience afterwards!
