Spinal steroid injection for lumbar herniated discs
I am 68 years young & just diagnosed with 4 herniated discs in my lumbar region of the spine. PT is helping only slightly with pain. Because of multiple health conditions pain medication is limited or out of the question. My pain management physician wants to do a spinal steroid injection in my lumbar area. Occasionally I get numbness in the front of my thighs. Sitting aggravates the condition.
With my panic disorder I am frightened of the procedure. I will be put to sleep for it. Any thoughts on this proposed spinal steroid injection?
