I'm 22 years old and have suffered with lower back pain and left leg pain for 4/5 years now. Last year I was given 2 sets of steroid injections (May & November) to l3,4,5 and s1.
This first set worked great and I was pain free for about 4 months. The second set worked just as well but I was told at the appointment that I was too young to keep having these injections so this would be the last time.
I was so gutted about this and felt let down because I thought I'd finally found something that works for me.
Has anyone else been told they're too young? I'm wondering when I can have them done again... 1 year... 5 years... 20 years I don't know.
But now I'm back on daily pain killers. The whole reason of the injections was to get me off pain relief!
