After months of going to different doctors, I'm getting a nerve block on my back tomorrow. It's not a cure, but I was told I should at least get some relief from the pain. He said it wasn't guaranteed, but any relief will be welcomed!

I have a had 3 in the last 12 months along with ablations which is ALOT.
You should get some relief and make it manageable.
Hopefully it will take and that will be all you need. I hate to see anyone suffer from back pain, I have been down and out ( but getting much better lately) for the last 5 months. I can give you a laundry list of things to try depending on what levels you are having problems with.
Good luck, I pray it helps you....

rabbit hunter..my experience with them is they can be hit or miss..in the past year i have had 4 on each side of my neck..and 3 in my back..some gave relief..some did not..with 3 more rounds of the steroids on each side of my neck..and 2 in my back..i go next tuesday for the ablation in my neck..so it may be that the blocks are just one treatment you will have to get to get any relief at all..none of the procedures are near as painfull as the pain you already have..but are required to find the right treatment to manage your pain..find one good dr and stay with him/her..you'll be better off..i like roy schmidt in jackson..he wont hand out pills..and thats what i like..been on pills for 10 years,they dont help..but he will manage your pain without meds..i wish you luck..just dont expect any one thing to be the magic cure..

Thanks everyone........I am seeing Dr. Schmidt, and I hope his aim is good and hits the right spot! He took me off my arthritis medicine last week so I guess he wanted me really hurting when I do this.

your in good hand brother..he has a system..let him work it and he will fix you up..he want you off the meds cause they are blood thinners..i've seen several pain management specialist over the years..they all want to throw some narcotic in your mouth..he will not give pills..except maybe neurontin..he will find the source..and treat it..him and his staff are exccellent folks..i give them 5 stars..

He is a good doctor and the one that did my nerve blocks. He wanted to implant a tens unit in my back.
