Hello all. new to the forum but not to back pain. 2 herniated disks that i have "aleve-d/advil-ed" for a couple years but now to the point where that isnt working anymore. had my first epidural injection last thursday and feel just as bad today as i did before. i assume 3 days is long enough to see if it worked?
worst thing is i hate my doc, dude didnt even say "boo" to me that day and nothing since. everything i know about it i had to find on the internet. i am firing him next week when i go in for a follow up....which leads me to my question. Any good referrals in the Dallas area? Thinking about going to the texas back institute but know nothing about them.
im sure ill have more question. plan on doing a lot of reading on here. thanks in advance!
p.s. i read my mri report and noticed an "annual tear"...can someone tell me what that means?
