Has anyone ever had a thoracic disc injury? I have a bulging disc between T7 & T8 that the doctor said MAY be touching my spinal cord. I have a burning sensation along with stabbing pain from the mid back all the way up my shoulders and down my arms. It is very painful and leaning back and riding in a car is such torture. The Neurosurgeon said it is not bad enough for surgery so I am scheduled to go to a Pain Management Center this week. I am currently in Physical Therapy, but it does not seem to be working. I also had a spinal fusion for L4 L5-S1 16 years ago so I'm no stranger to back pain. Has anyone had any success with the epidural shots or am I doomed to pain meds the rest of my life?
