Steroid shot for sciatica pain

The benefits from the first shot only lasted 2 weeks. The second and third set of injections lasted about 90 days. In November, I was ready to have surgery. My EMG and nerve conduction tests proved that the nerves were "sleeping" before I was. After another MRI, the neurosurgeon said I was a candidate for surgery but I was not able to get the endoscopic type surgery that is less invasive. I would have an incision about 6-8" long. Along with removing the herniation, they would have to increase the size of the hole where the nerve roots were going through.

What you described could be true sciatic nerve irritation, but the description is more consistent with muscle trigger point referral symptoms. The most likely suspect is the piriformis, but the gluteus minimus muscle might also be contributing. Since the symptoms started after having low back pain, my guess is that the sacroiliac joint is probably involved. My suggestion is to start with the piriformis stretch shown on the video at: http:///basic-sciatica-exercises/ . If it seems to help, try doing it frequently throughout the day for a few days (it’s a good idea to stretch both sides). If you can’t get lasting improvement, you may need some work on the sacroiliac joint to get things resolved. There is a technique in my members area for this (the pelvic repositioning technique), but you might need to see a chiropractor or osteopath for manipulation treatment.

2 years ago my wife had a L5-S1 large slip disk which pressered on the nurve as per the dr. Minimum movement was stopped due to extreem pain on right leg and she was on ice only. Dr. Advised emergency operations and micro-disectomy was performed. Even after operation few months took to decrease her pain, but she could got normal life due to pain. Now the old condition returned again. Right side extreem pain for last two months. She was sleeping on lest side. Last night the extreem pain stroke in the left side. It is so unbearable that she is trying to make suicide. Please help me.

As mentioned above, there may be more than one spinal structure causing your spine pain.  Sometimes, there are multiple causes for your spine pain or radiculopathy.  In this case, Dr. Lee may recommend alternative treatment options or steriod injections.  For example, if your sciatica/leg pain or hand pain improves with epidural steroid injection but you still have low back pain or neck pain, you may benefit from facet joint injections.  But, whatever the case, you will need further evaluation by Dr. Lee to decide on further treatment.  Remember that there are multiple treatments available now for pain and just because one method yielded partial or no response DOES NOT necessarily mean you will “just have to live with the pain”!
