I wanted to share my story with anyone considering a Cervical Epidurla Steriod injection. I had mine last week and the procedure only lasted 10 minutes. It wasnt as bad as i thought it would be and there was:
NO Sedation due to the Doc wanting to be able to talk to you and know what your experiencing, as sedated would put yoiu out and there could be problmes without the patient communicating.
Done through the FRONT of the neck, so the discs epidural space is more accurately reached as well as more closert than a posterior (rear neck approach)
With FLouroscopy-Camera guidance to see the needle and die injected for accuraacy.
Have had decent relief, but have experienced dizziness for a week now. Not sure if its the Lyrica im on or from the injection.
I am scheduled for another one next week. Anyone have this done and did you experience any dizziness thanks!!!
