Hello, I am a 20 year old male. I have been in 3 serious car accident and have suffered full back damage. I have been given an 11% permanent disability rating for my back from the first 2 accidents and I am awaiting the rating for the 3rd accident because it just happens 2 months ago. A little backround on the situation first.I was seeing a pain management doctor for a little bit over a year and he did at least 5 sets of cortisone injections into my cervical, thorasic and lumbar spine. I just started seeing a new pain management doctor because of the 3 hour wait at the old doctor and the fact that he wasnt listening when i told him the meds weren't working months on end. Anyways, the doctor looked at my MRI's and said that from what can see I never needed any of the injections. Am I looking at any kind of damage from the unnecessary steriod injections. I have read that it can lead to bone density lose and tendon damage and can make the pain worse. Is there anything I should be worried about. These injections were almost 15,000 in total for the last 5 of them that i have had this past year. I have other ones before this doctor also. All help is greatly appreciated.
Thank You in Advance.
