Have been diagnosed with herniated/collapsed disc in lower back. Finally have an appointment with pain clinic after 6 months on the waiting list.

Have been told they may give me an epidural steroid injection at this appointment. Feeling nervous but also hoping it will go ahead to help get rid of the constant pain.

Anyone had one and wish to share how the found the procedure and did it work?

Yes!!! And it was a miracle cure after months (years?) of physio etc. It was years ago but I can't remember that it was too traumatic.

Now I am just very careful never to lift anything ( and if I forget and start getting a twinge, I have a supply of naproxen)
