I'm going to spine clinic and this dr specializes in epidural injections and doesn't do surgery. I was thinking I would go with the injections for my 2 herniations in L5-S1 (causing sciatica every night for 2 years) and T11-T12. But after reading about side effects on here in so scared! I'm 5'9" and 220 lbs and I can't afford to gain weight! Do most of you think it's worth it for pain relief? I can't stand not sleeping.
