After chiro, oral steroids, 9 visits to PT, and a rx for Neurotin my symptoms are worse. The last session of traction made my left side feel like I was constantly touching a low voltage electric fence. I am so frustrated. Pain was never my chief complaint, but it's now almost worse than the zapping sensations so I stopped the therapy (after consulting my NS). MRI shows mild canal stenosis but severe foraminal stenosis. I know my NS will want to try epi shots next, but I really don't want them. Has anyone else had good luck with epidural shots for foraminal stenosis? If I thought I would get a few month's relief, I would be willing. But for a "severe" neck problem, are they really worth it?
