has anyone had lower back sugery recently and have nerve damage and have big knots come up in lower back?
I have had three sets of nerve block injections over the past seven months. I am scheduled for radio frequency ablation in 12 days. I am wondering if people get relief from them. Thanks in advance.
My doctor has been testing my nerve respons via putting me in a light sleep then poking my nerves with lidocaine type injections. Then I post how long they lasted i.e. 1 hour to 2 days.

I took my 3rd set of 2 Cimzia injections last night. I have no pain when injecting into my stomach. When I inject on my leg, however, I experience pain as the medicine goes in and it takes longer inject the medicine (as if there is resistance to emptying the syringe). Anyone else have this experience when using a syringe injection? Any recommendations?
