C-Spine Epidural?

As I am scheduled to receive c-spine epidural in late November,  I would like to hear your experiences of c-spine epidural, please. 

I have received a few different types of pain management treatments, but none so far provided me with a long and an effective relief. My NS recommended me to stop getting a nerve burn back in August, but gave a go ahead for an epidural this week. Trigger points injections hurt me so badly that I am scared beyond to get an epidural.

Although my NS told me I need a surgery, I haven't scheduled for a surgery. I am indecisive and scared, but planning "in my head" to have it done in February 2017.  So meanwhile, I have been on a search of some reliefs, perhaps for a long term relief to avoid an inevitable. 

Thanks for for sharing your epidural experiences!

    I received a cervical epidural block about 2 months ago. It was for c6-c7. The procedure took 15 minutes maximum. I was told to take it easy for 48 hours, with no bending et al. I only had a little discomfort at the site for a few days. I put ice on it. Besides that I couldn't even tell. It was easy and helped a lot. It honestly wasn't scary at all. Obviously, all procedures have risks associated, but there were a lot of people there for the same problem. Some had several previous blocks. Good luck!
