He was able to translate my MRI report and said I have something like lumbar facet disease and that the bottom 6 discs are full of arthritis and it is pressing on nerves. He is going to schedule me for lumbar facet injections and will knock me out for them. He said that is referring pain to the hips and that the injections should help with the hip pain as well. He said he did not know how much he could help the fibro pain since most all pain meds other than darvocet makes me sick, but he feels I can get a lot of relief from the facet injections. He also called in a script for celexa for depression/anxiety attakcs. He is starting me out at 10 mg at night for one week then going to 10 mg twice a day. I am very nervous about the shots but I need to do something and this may give me my life back.
