Okay, my Doctor (I use that term lightly) has me scheduled for a epidural later this month, while I was at his office the person who is going to do the epidural called and wants an MRI of my cervical spine as well. I already have one of my Thorasic area which shows two mild bulging discs. I have not heard a lot of success stories with this procedure.
I asked my Doctor what would be next if this doesn't work and he said probably a pain management doctor. Now my husband is all freaked out. He thinks once I start seeing a pain management doctor that I will be homebound for the rest of my life. I tried to explain to him that there are a lot of people on this board that go to pain management clinics and lead normal lives. He still doesn't believe me.
Am I correct that a lot of you that are seeing a pain management Doctor are going to work and leading somewhat normal lives?
I am hoping the epidural works but I will have to wait and see.
