I had my second epidural steroid injection on 07/07/2015 for degenerative disc disease and disc herniation at L4-5. As the first injection did not seem to improve my pain significantly, I have decided to keep a pain journal prior to going for my next injection on 07/24/2015. Has anyone else done this?
I realized that when I went for my second injection I couldn't remember the times I had specific pain and the pain level. Hopefully this will help, plus I will have when I see my neurosurgeon after the last injection.
I almost don't want to have the third injection since there has not been any improvement in my pain. The only thing that it seemed to help was the pain going down my right leg, but even that is back now.
