Has Anyone Hac A Nerve Block Done For Back Pain?

Has Anyone Hac A Nerve Block Done For Back Pain?

My pain doc wants me to try a nerve block on my back. I'm willing to try anything at this point. If you've had it done, is it painful? Does it hurt? I have DDD, stenosis,and L-4 and L-5 are herniated. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Nerve blocks are the only thing that gives me any quality of life. I generally have an increase in pain for a day or two followed by some relief. Sometimes they seem to do better than others but had one done Friday for L5 L6 and left the clinic feeling better than I had in 6 weeks. I wish you great results and hopefully a huge decrease in pain.

I have had a nerve blocker many years okay it didn't hurt for me cause they gave mean eperdural first But I don't think it made much difference but I guess everyone is different and responds to things differently You could give it a try nothing to loose?

My son had his L4 removed in 2014 @A MyChronicPainTeam Member then he was attacked recently and now has L5 bulging, he had a nerve block but it wore off overnight and he suffers too it breaks my heart, I suffer a useless R lower leg so I try and listen to him at 27 yrs of age, just shatters me as his life has just begun, just not fair he cannot work, cannot get disability either..... I use Lyrica for my nerve pain have you tried that? I hope you find some relief I truly feel for you 😕😔😊
