Herniated disc

Posted by ktgirl @ktgirl, Aug 30, 2019

Has anyone had a shot in the back for a herniated disc and nerve pain going down your arm? I’ve been off work for three weeks and can’t get any help around here. Physical therapy isn’t helping. Then I heard that the steroid shots are not approved by the FDA for the epidural area. I’m trying to get into Mayo but might be another two or three weeks. I also have bone spurs. What do I do!!
