Well, I have just received my first Epidural Injection in my neck yesterday. The spine specialist I am seeing at first tried the trigger point shots in my shoulder and neck, but they didn't work so he had me get the Epidural injection. The doctor numbed my neck and kept putting the injection in, but he kept hitting my bone. I could hear it grind everytime. He tried to inject me in between C5-C6, but he couldn't get it in. After trying so many times it really started to hurt. He ended up going in between C7-T1 just fine. He said my neck was too narrow to inject me where he wanted it to go in. I am still pretty sore from the injection, but I will live. i just hope this works for me. I would like to prolong surgery as long as I can. Thanks for listening.
