Hi Everyone, I had my 3rd epidural on Saturday and for the first time Facet joint injections for my arthropathy and my back is feeling a little better. I can turn a little better and I don't feel the "grinding" or hear it when I turn. Also my radiculopathy to my foot is much improved and there is hardly any more tingling or pain. I'm glad I went to this 2nd pain management Dr. or I would've received more useless trigger point injections from that 1st pm Dr. who wanted to do 10 weeks of epis. Anyways just to let you know those pain injections helped. Have a more painfree day everyone. Charry
