So far, it does not appear that the injection in my back on the 15th followed by bilateral hip injections on the 29th have worked. Might be too soon but pain just seems to rotate from back to one hip or the other and back to the back.
The plan was an epidural based on if these prelininary injections helped. Next visit 10/20.
MEANWHILE my left arm!!! I have pain at the base of the L thumb and a bum L elbow for a very long time. At time the entire L arm hurts. Had one injection in the thumb/wrist area that did nothing. No one has ever suggested an elbow injection.
NOW - my L hand which was intermittently numb and tingliy (yes, like carpal tunnel) seems to be constantly so!!
