Work Hardening canceled, Epidural ordered
I am supposed to start a work hardening program tomorrow but my pain has gotten worse. This was worrying me a little. So today, I called and talked to my Orthopedic Dr. and told him about new and worsening symptoms that I have now just from 3 to 4 weeks ago. I told him I had intense pain in my leg(numbness,tingling,stabbing pain) and also had worsening headaches(tension) and neck pain. He said my neck pain had nothing to do with my back injury and that if anything the neck pain would have come first. I told him that I very well could have injured my neck also when I fell and he agreed and said that it would be a good idea to cancel the work hardening and order epidural shot. Does anyone have an idea on what might be the next steps if the epidural shot does not work?
