I only signed up for this web site to post my comment about spinal injections...They are terrible The first time the pain was so bad I passed out. Two days later I lost control of my bowel and bladder and could not walk. After an emergency surgery all was good...for a while.

About me: My entire back and neck are really messed up with everything from ruptured discs, bulging discs, spinal stenosis. compressed spinal cord, spinal tumor, spondylosis, neural foramina damage, etc... I had to go to a neurosurgeon and when he said injections I told him "NO WAY!" He pretty much said this is the treatment. I agreed because he is doing other tests and it's diagnostic. I told my neuro if I am awake when they do it I will get off the table and LEAVE! Supposedly I am to be sedated for this, if not I am stabbing the doctor in the back with the needle and see how he likes it, before he starts his torture treatment.
