Re: Is there a difference between a Nerve Block an a Epidural?
I'm glad that you get some relief with these injections, but I must warn you that more than 3 injections a year can lead to bone thinning, cataracts, musculr problems, and more. A few dr's say 3 inj. every 6 months, but the majority go with 1 year. It's maddening that the same treatment that can help us, can also cause bad problems. You might want to discuss this with your doctor; unfortunately, some pm's will inject you numerous times and pooh pooh the idea that it is harmful. After all, there is big bucks in doing these inj's and procedures!
