    Has anybody had a Epadural Steroid Injection? Just wondering if it works?

    Everyone is unique and responds uniquely to any treatment. My wife has had success with this treatment, where others in this community have not.

    Do your research, ask your doctor lots of questions and understand the risks and benefits. Then decide to try the procedure if you feel comfortable. Individual results WILL ALWAYS vary.

    I pray you find relief soon.

    I have had several, and at first it worked for a while, then each time i received far les relief and for far less time than before. They worked great for my Mom whom has problems w/ her si joints. All depends on your paid scenerio. I didn't stop getting he injections soon enough. My wedding day I looked puffy in all my pictures. So expect a little weight gain and puffiness. mendy44
