Hi, I'm new to this forum & happy to have found you. I haven't listed all my issues, because there is something wrong with every disc in my lower back, & I need to go through all my MIT & X-Ray & write down the specifics of each disc. They include bulging, herniated, spurrs, scoliosis, & bad bursitis in my left hip. I've done the cortisone shots, did nothing. Two steroid epidurals, which helped a lot, but not for very long. Lucky me, I have an extremely high tolerance to drugs, & it takes a lot to give me any kind of relief. So Wednesday I had the procedure where they burn the nerves (they did 6). Sorry I can't remember the actual name of it. Waaay more painful than the other epidurals. Within less than 2 hours I had 250 mg of demoral & some versed & finally calmed down enough to go home. I am still really sore, & my question is how long does that last? I heard somewhere that the more painful the procedure is, the more likely they hit the right spot. Is that true? Appreciate all thoughts & opinions
