Hi Everyone, I was in a car accident in June and have two badly herniated discs in my back (the last 2 bottom ones). One is pressing on my spinal canal and hitting a nerve. I also have 2 herniations in my neck, but they are not as bad. I experience horrible nerve pain down my legs along with lower back pain.
I have gone through one set of injections called a "Selective Nerve Root Block" with minimal success. They are saying most people go through 3 rounds.
Is this procedure effective or is it a temporary solution? Hoping to hear from people who have had the same procedure.
I currently take percocet 5/325, lyrica and skelaxin and would like to be off them and pain free!
