Triamcinolone is the med that the pm doc wants to inject into my spine fluroscopically(sp). I am concerned about having this done but he says that is the next step. I had injections in 1999,2000 it helped for about a year. Then in 2004 is was diagnosed with arachnoiditis-right spelling. I am afraid to have the injections because I was told not to ever have anything else done to my back. My pain meds are not working as well. They only took the edge off if I am not a normal person.
