Cervical Spinal Stenosis & Nerve Block
Hi all - I am 45 years old & have Cervical Spinal Stenosis & last week my pain increased 100%. It was so bad I begged my husband to take me to the hospital. I found out that the S.S. is causing a pinched nerve. My doctor increased my pain medicine & wants to do a nerve block. I am not sure about this. It is painful, no promise of good results & invasive. Has anyone done this before? Please tell me your story. I am very afraid. It seems like the S.S. is progressing. I am waiting on my insurance co. on whether or not I can do Spinal Decompression. This seems really promising, but it's been 2 months & my insurance co. still hasn't made a decision. Next month we are going to Florida for a week & for the first time I will be riding in a wheelchair at the airport. I am very depressed about this.
I need help paying my increasing medical costs. I want to find a charity to help me. Am I dreaming or does anyone know of something like this?
Thanks everyone. Be well.
