Facet nerve block didn't work
Well, I had the nerve block yesterday, with no success. She did 8 injections, 4 per side. But after a half an hour, I could tell that I still had as much pain as before the shots.
I am very disappointed. The doctor made a comment that "it must be inflammation that we are dealing with", when she examined me after the injections. But I'm not sure what that means for my treatment. I already had steroid injections, and they didn't help either.
I will wait to see what she has to say when I see her next. I need to make an appointment for sometime in the next few weeks. I am so tired of this pain, even though I know it isn't as bad as many other people here. But 1.5 years of constant pain, is getting old. And I'm tired of needing help with all kinds of things I used to be able to do myself, and not being able to do a lot of things I want to do.
Sorry for ranting, I just needed to get it out.
