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.
