Had two ESI's last year and had short term relief (hours). Just had further facet injections to be told L5-S1 couldn't be visualised and the L4-5 couldn't be accessed. They did the L3-4 level with minimal improvement of arm/back mobility.Have also had 2 medial Branch blocks with negative results. Have a follow-up appt. in 3 weeks but am nosy and want to know where my facet joints may have gone. Any advice would be appreciated as being constantly hunched over and living on pills is a bit depressing-Hugs n' Loves- Paula
