  • Steriod ESI's? I have had these type several times and they didn't help me, my SIL has had them done and works wonders for her.

    Some people it helps some they don't. Sure wish I was in the other group... Glad they seem to be working for you. Continued good wishes with upcoming injections.

    they could not be ESI (Steroid Injections) More than likely they are Trigger points. I've had up to 5 trigger points at one time. Trigger points are basically Lidocaine based, where ESI are cortisone

  • I've had the steroid/cortisone injections, mine were about 3 shots. one to numb the area so they can stick me with larger needles, the other ones went into the area and injected next to my screws and my S-1 nerve that is still irritaed to this day. anyway, i had a series of 6 treatments, none worked for me (2 failed fusions). i just joined today, but one of these days i'll post all the crap i went through. good luck
