mrector, do you know what meds your doctor used? Mine used Lidocaine and Marcaine. @cognac

vickiet, I had the shots in S1, L3, L4, &L5 and the results were wonderful, fantastic, magical!!! INSTANT pain relief!!! The discomfort from the injections was less than having one Flu shot. Total time was less than 10 minutes. I iced my back for 24 hours when I got home, as instructed, because everything was sore, but I'm sure we both know the difference between sore and pain. When I went for the follow-up 3 weeks later I asked my doctor if he had a medical degree, or is he had gone to New Orleans and learned Voodoo!!!! That was 6 weeks ago. I know it doesn't work for everyone, but I hope it does for you. If you're like me you've been walking hunched over so a word of caution. Because I was no longer in pain, I was able to stand up straight. I forgot that would change my sense of gravity and balance. So be careful until you get your equilibrium back. Good luck, vickiet. Please let me know how it goes. cognac01

wba3721 You sound exactly like me. All I can say is I understand. I've been like this since 2014. I'm not taking Esbriet or Ofev because I fear the side effects, plus I understand it's very expensive. Nor am I going to Pulmonary Rehab because it's never been mentioned. Does it help you? PLEASE respond. Good luck in your research. cognac

@oldkarl, yes, I am fortunate. It took going to a lot of doctors, and trying a LOT of different Rx's. But at least I found someone who finally believed me. Take care, and good luck. @cognac

@oldkarl, EXCUSE ME? Your family and PC said WHAT? What a terrible thing to say. I'm so very sorry. I live alone, but at least my PC has done everything she can to stop the pain. She believes me when i say my pain leads to depression which leads to anxiety which leads to more pain. She has referred me to a Spine & Pain Clinic. Take care of yourself and please continue trying to get relief. Remember, you're worth it. @cognac

Sep 1, 2018 · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

@clayhere, Please forgive me, but may I just please yell at someone? Your post says the doctors can't find what is wrong. Yet when you ask for two tests you are told you don't need them. What's the matter? Aren't the doctors getting paid enough to give you the tests? If you're on Medicare, didn't their financial office "contract" enough payment for the tests? Or are they afraid the tests will show something they hadn't thought of and be embarrassed for their oversight? Again, please forgive me, clayhere. What your post describes is very similar to what I've been going through and I just finally had to get it out. Good luck, Friend. @cognac
