Should I get an injection?

 So about eight months ago I woke up and couldn't get out of bed because my back was hurting. To make a long story short between therapy and finally getting an MRI months later when I couldn't take it anymore I found out I had herniated disc. So I finally got an appointment for a Cortizone shot in my back to reduce some sciatic nerve pain but now it's starting to feel better. I know sometimes they kind of heal themselves, and it still bothers me but slightly. Should I just continue to see if it keeps feeling better? Or would it be best to just to go get the shot if it's already in the healing process and help finish it's healing?
