That sucks ryan.

Just chill and let it get fixed, you don't want lingering back problems cause you decided to stick it out.

Old happens.

I am going in for my second epidural injection next saturday. The first one helped, so hopefully this will too. Been in pain for 8 months this time.

Good luck and hope you heal better than me.

firehawk, i have had 8 injections in the last 10 months!

only got relief from one of them, and that only lasted 2 maybe 3 weeks.

the doctor dosent know what to do with me anymore.

my specialist wants to cut me up and he says he can fix it. i told him to buy me some time until i can pay my truck off.

good luck with this. my dad blew out one of his disks almost six years ago. he works for the post office so he was lucky to have workmans comp. but he had 2 or 3 of the epiderials, they lasted for a few months and then would be in pain. he was perscribed vicodin and eventually became addicted to them, so the doctors cut them out. he finally had surgery about 2 years ago, which envolved them actually constructing a new disk out of bone from his hip. it was a long drawn out process but as of now he has no complaints. hopefullly everthing works out for you

I messed up the same ones plus 1C/2C, 6C, 4T, 6,8,9T, and 2L. I have no idea why the pain started in December but I was fine on a Friday and not fine the next morning. I waited to long to go to the doctor so now I'm going to a chiropractor and practicing walking normal again.
All I'm doing to get my leg muscles to loosen up is walking around the house with a book on my head to keep my posture correct. When you get a back injury you start walking stupid and everything goes wacky. My legs have been all that's been hurting other than my neck since the whole thing started. No back pain. My shoulders got messed up from trying to pull myself up and down stairs.
My reg. doc suggested just practicing walking straight and stretching then if that doesn't work physical therapy would be my next move. So, I bought a new pair of walking shoes and am standing up straight and tall - all 5'2" of me, that is.

I am sitting here with my muscle stimulator on trying to get the back to loosen up. Anyone have any luck with these?

It does work for me, but I might upgrade to the bigger, more powerful one.
