advise - RAF vs Epidural Injections
My RA doctor wants me to be referred to a PM doc for an epidural injection for the bulging disk. I guess she doesn't realize that I have a pm doc....but anywawys....I have gone thru the diagnostic injections and then the RAF from c1-t5 in 2008. It gave me some pain decrease and increase in ROM, but the back between the shoulders to sternum, it never touched.
My question is this, Since the RAF was only minimally successful, is the epidural about the same? She said to forego the PT since we have been treated for that 2 times at PT. This was all via the phone. Have I already tried the epidural sorta of since I did the RAf?
thanks for your advise, patti
