Re: Epidural shot
A good doctor and anesthesiologist who are paying attention should make the actual injection 95% pain free. A couple hours later? Varies widely by individual reaction. Most are mild, just sometimes puzzling, and clear up in 24 hours. I have had about 9 with no more than fatigue and weird twitching until the next morning. Unfortunately, never any significant positive results lasting more than several weeks.
Severe DDD, Severe neural foraminal stenosis at 2 levels, moderate canal stenosis at 2 levels, significantly impaired left shoulder & arm function. Chronic moderate compression fracture at C6.
