I am a 28 year old female Army Veteran recently diagnosed with Degenerative disc disease in my C3,4&5 and arthritis in my C6&C7. After 2 years of neck pain, useless physical therapy, and medicine that I hate to take the VA finally sent me to a neurosurgeon who decided that Cervical Facet Joint Injections are the best way to start off trying to manage my pain. Is there anyone on here that has experience with those injections? I have been trying to research and everyone that I've seen post about them advises against them. I'm really young and up until last October I had been very active and tried to just ignore the pain. I am a runner and avid gym goer and really just want to feel the age that I am. Please help!
