Hi Everyone, I just had my 8 needles again for the fourth week in a row and 2 more weeks to go with epinephrine shots. The Doc asks how long the needles work for and I say a little while, but really they're not doing much. I can't seem to understand referred pain stops though for my leg. The Doctor says it helps your leg! But I don't inject your leg. I'm so tired of these weekly shots. I'm glad it's only 2 more weeks then what?
Did anyone else have to get these injections? I have L5-S1 herniated disc with annular tear and impingement on the nerve. So I have sciatica also.
Has anyone ever healed on their own without surgery?
Thanks for your support. Charry
