Good morning all, I can't speak for all of you but I do know for myself that I do a lot of research on my own. I mean really, when you see your PM Doc and they have 3 other patients scheduled at the same time as your appointment, just how much attention are they giving you? I was wondering if anyone has heard of'perispinal etanercept (embrel biologic ) injections and if you have found any relief? I have been turned down by 4 of the best neuro and orthopedic surgeons in this country as my back is a total mess; scoliosis in two areas, herniations from T-2 to S-1, 5 compression fractures (3 pressing on my spinal chord) due to complications of DDD and osteoporosis. My condition is deteriorating rapidly :( I used to get spinal blocks, epidurals, and facet blocks (those worked for a short period of time until the other are of my back could not withstand the added strain) They don't do double blocks. I am in spasm within 5-10 minutes of standing or sitting- ceertainly no way to live. Please let me know if anything has worked, helped and if you have tried the embrel injections. Much appreciated! Heere's to a relatively pain free day to all of you! xoLyn

I don’t know what is going to happen to me due to abruptly discontinuing these meds. I...
