Has anyone ever had a epidural steroid injection in the neck area? Is it very painful? Do they work?
I worked for Orthopaedic surgeons and had this injection about 15 years ago for neck pain. I remember it feeling weird and hurting a little and the needle seemed so big. The relief was only for a few days in my case. I never had it done again. This was a long time ago and things have changed and some people experience great relief and some don’t. Don’t be afraid of having one even though no one likes injections. And don’t listen to horror stories either.
