So I am going to getting an epidural injection soon. I have had 2 regualr injections which did not help at all. Are these injections more effective. I am also going to PT 3 times a week. The meds I am are, Lyrica, Mobic (anti-inflammitory), Soma (mucle relaxer) and Oxycodone for nights that are really bad. My Dr. does not want to do surgery at this point due to my age (I am 34), and he does not feel that my herniation is bad enough to constitue surgery. I am dealing with sciatic pain and my herniation is L4/L5. I just want to feel better and be able to stand, walk, get my life back. Can anyone give me any suggestions to help me figure this out and get better. I am getting so depressed. Thank you!!!!
