Epidural (caudal) steroid injections-So Many?
Hi everyone, I had my second epi today and more trigger injections. My left foot feels numb but the tingling has decreased a great deal as well as the pain. Back pain is down on the pain scale. I go again in 2 weeks for a 3rd epi injection. I'm concerned about getting too much (marcaine) steroid epidurals. The Anaesthetist mentioned maybe 10 epidurals every 2 weeks apart. This time it was less painful just some pressure. I wonder if anyone else has had so many epidurals? Charry
