I'm curious. Doctors swear by epidurals. I had 3, 2 were guided. Best effect lasted less than a week. I'm guessing I've talked to well over 20 people who have had epidurals for back pain. No one reported any improvement. I wonder what the experience is in this community.

Hello, @jager5210 – your query about epidurals for back pain might be an excellent question to post in the Chronic Back Pain for Years thread, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/chronic-pain-for-years/, as there are so many members there affected by back pain who might have some input for you.

Agree. Epidurals are not the answer to SFM. Did that and wasted a year not to mention the risk involved.

i have had 8 epidurals, only one did not work, the others provided relief for quite awhile, but in the end it only masks the issues, eventually symptoms come back, but I would say they have been beneficial for me in the long run
