Someone Please Tell Me About "shots."

Someone Please Tell Me About "shots."

I've gotten steroid injections at specific target.
I've gotten nonsteroid injections for general area.
Not supposed to come back for 3 months. I've always been ready to return at 2 months.
NOW I've been sent on supposedly for epidural (numbing the whole spine?) It supposed to be good for a year?

I read people's posts here... seems there are lots of kinds of shots. Anyone want to straighten me out please???

Sorry, I posted on your wall about the different things. There's actually a couple responses :)
The nerve block is injection, nerve burns are procedures using guided imaging also but they do not get near the nerve root.
