    Facets injections

    I am a 44 yr. old female with degenerative disc disease. I found my way to a pain management clinic about 2 years ago. Before that I was taking handfuls of vicodin, with hardly any relief. My main problem is lower back (L2-5). I've tried botox, no relief and facets injections (MIRACLE)except you can only have a limited amount of the steroids in the injections!! I tried RFL...some relief, not nearly as much as facets! Now I will try sarapin....I think injections...I'm looking for anyone who has ever tried serapin...PLEASE REPLY!!!

    Re: Facets injections

    hi taxlady..gosh, i wish i could help you, but i have a question instead. i have been reading about the wonderfull results they have been getting with BOTOX and i wanted to try that...my doc, says they only take a 'selective few' patients for that and i probably couldnt have them. bummer. of course, first they have to find out what is causing my pain. been ten years with no diagnosis...had a mri, and a spinal tap/ct. i am perfectly fine...NOT. anyway, i hope someone answers you about the injection you want to try next. i am fifty and its been a long, long ten years..i sure wish the BOTOX would have helped you. they say it kills the nerve and when it regenerates, the patient is pain free....and you are saying that it didnt work for you. than isnt good news for me...i was going to try to convince my doc that i should try it..if they could find where to put it... good luck to you with finding some releif. i do the vicodins..and like you say, they arent the best, but they have been helping me some what. at least i get some sleep with them. i also take amitriptiline in small doses...that might be helping me too. who knows...i just want it to all go away and i can be my old self....i can hardly remember that anymore... <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif"> best of luck to you...
