Facet Joint injections

I am 20 years old and have lumbar facet syndrome. I had 2 steroid injections 5 days ago and an not having any relief yet. The pain is the same. I had 2 other injections about two months ago in the same spots and they worked for about a week and then stopped. I am curious what others experiences have been with these. I have tried physical therapy and medication to no avail. What else can be done or will this just be my life from now on. I am usually at a 4 or 5 on the pain scale. The pain does not prevent me from doing anything necessary (running and walks longer than 2 miles are not tolerable) but rather everything just hurts and makes my back angry.
