I'm still fairly new to all this and to the site. I've gotten my spinal MRI results and was told I have a synovial cist at L4-L5. I'm waiting for an apptmt with an anestheologist but, in the meantime, was told the treatment would like be aspiration of the cyst and a pain block.
Is a pain block the same as cortisone/steroid injection?
And, are these injections painful? The thought of it is a bit scary but... regardless, I'll do it to get rid of the constant leg pain! Just hoping to be 'prepared'.
