YesDoes your face hurt?So, I got a epidural/steroid shot in my neck last Thursday. This is step one of basically pain management until something either gets worse or if I just decide to have neck surgery. This can last anywhere from this point of time until 18 months.
So far so good. The juice started doing its job on Saturday when I was driving on a college visit for my son. My wife asks me: "How's your neck feeling?"
I look at her and up until that particular moment I hadn't noticed any pain at all. I looked at her and said: "I actually feel pretty good!"
The rest of that day was spent walking around a really hilly campus and then watching the football game (my son is a kicker and wants to play in college. this was a campus invite from the team}.
I'd say the pain is 90% gone. Shoulder blade pain - gone. Head pain - gone. A little bit of neck soreness but the doc had told me I may some arthritis there too so we will see how much pain this helps. Haven't felt this good in literally years.
Not every day is perfect but man it's a ton better. Gonna try and ramp up some running and see what happens there.
