Re: Over 2o Trigger Point Injections!!!!!
Hello. I just had two series of "trigger point injections" in the neck area. I have what the doctor called a "slipped disc", which is giving me tremendous pain in the neck area and back of skull. It almost feels like a squeezing feeling in the neck area, but only slight pain when I turn my head. I was wondering if the injections helped you at all with your back problems. So far, the injections have not helped relieve my pain at all. I had one series with about 4 injections a month ago, then the next series two weeks later, which was about the same amount of injections. The doctor talked about other injections that can be given called "x-ray guided" injections with different medications, but I will have to wait for my next visit in 2 weeks to find out about that. I think the trigger point injections were of the steroid type. I am just curious if your injections helped relieve any of your pain? I also take a pain pill and a muscle relaxer, and these don't help either. Can't seem to find any relief for myself so far. Hope your doing better; let me know if you can!
