I have had 5 Epidural injections sometimes they work sometimes they dont. My Pain Clinic doctor will only give the injections 3 times a year. My first one for this year was the end of January and I actually didnt have any nerve pain til this week it is slowly coming back in my lower buttocks. Hopefully the severe nerve will not come back until I am back from a small vacation in DC 3 days the end of this month. I have been given Vicodin and Oxycodone neither help.
