Just Wanted to hear from people going thru what iam going thru. I've had 6 injections seemed they worsen my pain now my doctor put me on some kind of musle relaxer i was trying to find some info on.I'm also on hydrocodones i would like to get off of. Can anybody give me some advice please.


  • Welcome to Spine Health!! I'm sorry you are suffering. I am also a lumbar patient. I hope you are able to find something that works and gives you relief. You may need to get a second opinion from another doctor. Have you done that already or do you have that option?

    Take care,

  • Hello Cherish22
    Sorry to hear you are suffering like that.Man thought i was in bad shape.
    My Doctor put me on muscle relaxer today and they are going to burn my nerves in my back above my lumbars just not sure about that kinda afraid about them making me worse.Do you know anything about that(nerve burning)?
    You will also be in my prayer's Cherish22.
    I will be wainting to hear from you soon hopefully.I wanted to tell you about what med's i'm on Methacarbonmal somthing like that and norco hydrocondone's 10m. Very addicting.
    Can you give me some feedback on that also please?
    Thax so much.
  • Hi,

    Im kind of concerned about a similar thing. I was advised today by one doctor to have an injection so that I could exercise more rigorously.....

    My concern is that covering up the pain to do something my body is clearly telling me not to do is not going to help in the long run. If I have a compressed nerve, and doing alot of physical activity aggravates that....how is covering it up to be able to aggravate it further a good idea?

  • I"m with you on that,it's scary to know i'm still hurt just can't feel it.That can't be good sound's good supposely pain free but that's just a maybe. Injection didn't work for me.But it does work for some people injection also in the long run aren't good for your spine or bone cause's bones to weakend and become brittle from the sport's medicine.
    Good luck to you tiffany.
