Hi all! I've been researching discograms and ran across this forum. I've had lumbar back pain for many years - and it's getting worse. I've been doing the various injections and radio frequency treatments and none of them are long-term effective. My doctor asked me to consider a discogram. He said it was painful and that I might have worse pain for several weeks afterwards. I haven't decided. What I really want is to know exactly what the problem is. I know I have scoliosis and stenosis. Any suggestions from you back pain warriors?
