I'm having my 1st ESI on Friday 12/04/15 in the c5-c6 or c6-c7 area. My pain from sitting upright (especially in a hard backed chair) or standing still skyrocket quite quickly to 8-9 range, so I'm hoping for any kind of relief with these shots.
A little nervous about them sticking a needle that close to my spine, but I'm optimistic for good results.
I have DDD and narrowing in c5-c6 and c6-c7 on left side sending pain from my neck into my shoulder, down my arm (tricep usually) to my elbow, and thumb, pointer and middle fingers go numb.
I've done 2 months of therapy with no real positive results, So I guess this is the next step.
I know it might sound silly to some, but I would love some positive prayers sent my way for Friday.
As always my thoughts, prayers and healing wishes go out to all.
