i have been having epidural steroid injections and facet blocks every 3 months for the past year. No improvement and hasn't helped with the pain. Not only that but has been financially devastating. I have been to two doctors and both haven't been able to tell me why all of this is happening. They have basically told me it's just coincidental and not related. I have not had any serious trauma that would be an obvious explanation. I guess I'm just looking for anyone with similar experiences or stories. I really appreciate you taking the time to read this and look forward to any information you can offer!
