Herniated disc

@ktgirl I've had many epidural steroid shots for my herniated discs in the lumbar region. It's a very common procedure. Where are you reading that they are not approved? Have you reached out to a pain clinic? I hope you get relief soon – I'm in bed today because my back pain is so bad, waiting for another shot. Hope you feel better soon!

Do you know what drug they are injecting? I stumbled onto a video of Dr. Oz who I take with a grain of salt! But he said the FDA has never approved the epidural injection into the spine. I’m not real smart on this stuff but it sounded like there’s too much of a chance that they can damage the spinal cord if they don’t get the needle in correctly. I think if they are guided by a cat scan it’s much better. Is that what you have had? Did you have them done in Rochester Minnesota or are you from somewhere else? I would be going to Rochester if they ever call!
