I had one done and while it worked, we found out that steriods and my body really don't get along. Please make sure they are using the fluoroscope. It is really important when they are going near your spine.
Here is my experience...
The numbing shot stings a little bit and the pressure is more of an odd sensation then a bad one. The worst part was actually the medicine injection. It caused me to flush (hot flash, racing heart, heat throughout my body) and that scared the !#$% out of me.
Afterwards my neck was stiff for two days. The first 24hrs was the worst, it felt like the joint was stuck and I could not turn or move up and down, the next day was like waking up with a stiff neck after sleeping a little funky.
I was in and out of the office is 45 mins, 40 of it was preperation and just sitting after the procedure.
Best of luck to you.

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
