Dealing with Sciatica pain

The MRI shows spinal stenosis and two bulging discs, but before I get an epidural I wanted to try a shot in the piriformis muscle and PT. I have no pain in the lower back, only on the left side of the thigh and groin with severe muscle cramping. So far I haven’t had much relief. Am due for another shot next week. I am really scared to get an epidural b/c of the proximity of the spinal cord, so that will be my last resort. Thanks for responding.

(shortshot80) I have had two surgery’s for spinal stenosis and both really helped. I’m 84 now and all is well as far as those go, I have other problems. Can’t do much for them though. But I would do the surgeries again drather than a shot in a muscle or epidural. The surgery is a faster- less problems. (It was for me) just have to do as the doc says. I would do it again!
