i'm hoping to get some advice please. I just returned from my pain management dr who'd order an MRI & diagnosed me as having a couple of bulging discs & arthritis in my lower back. He's scheduled me to have an injection in my back in a couple of weeks which I'm quite freaked out about & I've been taking Hydrocodone Acetominophen 10-325 T every 8 hours but frankly it doesn't help the pain much & certainly not for 8 hours.. My question is if it's normal for a pain dr to give these injections? After reading others I'm even more freaked out & wondering if I should be seeing a spine dr please?
