I went to the pain specialist the first time today for consultation. He said he would "inject pain med into the painful thoracic area". "Ouch!!"
But explained this was a test that would till him if my pain was coming from the facet joints or the muscles.....???? Talked like it is sort of done like a nerve block with out the steroids because I am very sensitive to steroids he is going to try this first.
(it's been yrs since I've had alot of steroids that didn't do we well)
I forgot what they called this, but has anyone else had this procedure done? Afterwards it depends on how long ii'm pain free .... 1 hr or a few days. Where he thinks the pain is coming from.... Now what he can do about it if it's just 1 hr --- I don't know!!!
