I have read some inputs from people having the above. For some it worked for others they got more problems and I am scared also because I suffered from extra vasation of contrast six years ago which triggered lots of health problems and cancer. I don't want to get another medical mishap. The triage team at kings referred ne to pain clinic for these injections and I have my doubts. In Europe they don't use epidurals but do cortisone injections on the gluteus parts and they work just as well. Any thought on this please? I am now on codeine amptrillyn anadin and osteopath care. I am also taking vitamin b12 turmeric and Ala. my sciatic pain got worse in the last few weeks with burning pain down the right leg and back. I also heard of a centre in Harley stret where they use low density laser Rays for pain and for decompression of a disk irritating the nerve. There are only two centres in the world doing this one in London and one in Zurich.
