Injection Therapy

Injection Therapy

I got a call that I was taken off the wait list after over a year for the pain clinic near me, and that if I'm interested in "injection therapy" I should call for an appointment. I'm just not sure. It seems like any sort of injection therapy given to individuals with AS turns out to give results that vary from terrible to no effect. I don't often hear of this helping. Maybe you all have some input. Thanks :)

I used to be on Humera and noted less joint pain. I came off of it and the pain has been increasing after a year. My daughter didn’t work well on Humera. All I can say is try until you find something that works for you, keep it. Everyone has different reactions. My daughter didn’t work well on Humera.

I have had a few epidural injections and facet joint injections and they did help me. Nothing last forever though.

It helped me not. I have an extremely good doctor here in AZ and she told me that it is simply a coin toss if it will help or not, I've had every injection therapy there is and no help at all, in fact a few made me worse. However I did try them as if it worked I'd have been extremely happy. The nerve root ablation's (radio frequency nerve ablation's) helped but really only the sciatica, which is okay because every little bit helps in my boat with Fibromyalgia, Spondylosis, Spondylitis, degenerative disc disease, and 6 bad disc's lower and mid back. If you haven't tried it, it may be worth the try... I hope it works for you!

Just always remember everyone is different, what works for 1 or even 100 may or may not for you.

Wishing you a well day and night as well as a better tomorrow!

The best thing anyone can do is to at least try it. As everyone is different, it may work for you? One will not know unless you try it.

Good luck to you dear, all the best! And I hope for your sake it works!
