I'm a new member so I apologize in advance if this has been asked...
I have a bulging discs at L3-L4, and herniated discs at L4- L5 and L5 -S1 with compression at S1 nerve root. The pain down my leg is so bad that I can't take it. This has been going on for 7 months. I have tried acupuncture, physio, spinal decompression etc. and nothing works.
Has anyone ever tried LILT (Laser Therapy) ? If so, any thoughts??
My second question is, has anyone ever had Marcaine injections? If so, how do they figure out the correct spot to put the needle? I was under the impression this is done by ultrasound guidance.. but today my doctor suggested this procedure to me, and he said "he just knows where the needle goes". Now I am stressed out about having the injections.
Again, I apologize if they have already been asked. I'm a newbie, and under a lot of stress
