Hello, hope everyone is having a nice day. I am wondering what you had first done for your neck issues; MRI or ESI. I know that MRI is a test and ESI is to try to treat the pain. I had X-rays, had 1 ESI a month ago that helped lessen the intensity of the pain, and had another a week ago that did nothing. MRI may be in my near future, will find out on tuesday. Symptoms probably factor in on what came first but I am curious to find out how many have had the one before the other.
