Hi all I received 6 injections from my neurologist today... in my back...I tell you everytime I cough I feel it...But I hope tomorrow I will wake up feeling a little better..... I have hernia 1 disk and 3 degenerated disk,,,not good.. My back hurts a lot most of the time.. Have anyone else experienced this type of treatment before.. the injections are just pain meds and steroids...

Welcome to the club! I have degenerative disc disease. Nerve blocks no longer work for me so I have to take neurontin for the nerve pain. On top of that I have osteoporosis. I've shrunk an inch due to the vertebrae collapsing on each other. Some days are better than others. I'm better when I can get regular exercise. I hope you will find some comfort where you won't have to live in pain.

Being in pain a lot of the time is no fun. I can testify to that. Especially when it seems like all you do is move around another position and sometimes hurt more. You get to a pain where you being to wonder why me, and will this ever end? Your problem does not sound Fun and I wonder is there more that they could do to help? I will be Praying for you.
