I am experiencing severe neck pain from a MVA. i was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, severe spondylosis and a bulging disc. I have had one epidural/steroid injection but the pain has not gone away. My next epidural is scheduled for this week. I would like to know if it is really worth having these injections as a wait and see if the pain goes away approach or is surgery my only option. My pain rating is currently a 7 out of 10 and I am having trouble making it through the days I have to work due to this pain. I plan on filing for short term disability and would also like to know if this is a condition that qualifies for diability if I do not have surgery or if I do not recover from surgery.
