I have congenital and injury stenosis in the cervical and lumbar spine. I also have a benign lumbar spinal tumor. There are 12 ruptured/herniated discs in my lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine. I have been having bad head pain and blacking out because i have a compressed spinal cord. I often wonder where its being squished the most.
A lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injection procedure is performed to relieve low back and radiating leg pain. The steroid medication can reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by spinal conditions such as spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, sciatica, and herniated disc. #spine #health http://www.southeasternspine.com/procedures-treatments/lumbar-transforaminal-epidural-steroid-injection/
One of the scariest moments in my life was when I was told I needed to have a cervical fusion or risk becoming quadriplegic. This blog talks factors that lead to my surgery. This blog also includes health resources for coping with nerve pain, including strengthening and stretching exercises to help reduce nerve pain.
