havent been on for awhile, not much has changed! i had a nerve root block, then 4 sets of steroid injections and NONE of them worked they actually made me feel worse. I still have the same numbness and the pain seems to be getting worse. I go to the doc on the 23rd to have a big pocket of fluid next to my spinal cord drained OUCH......trying to figure out what caused this fluid build-up. any ideas? thanks jess
