    I’m sorry QTPie! I am also suffering from lumbar spine pain right now and definitely understand the frustration (as do many of our community). In addition to the articles Richard shared, I thought you might enjoy this one on one of our contributor’s journey with Physical Therapy.

    Yes, cervical spinal stenosis, degerative disc disease (cervical) I just started Epidural injections which don’t seem to be working.

    I had the injection as well. Didn’t help either. I’m now doing therapy. Which also doesn’t seem to help. So I know how you feel. Heat helps me a little.

    PT was not helpful for me either. Heat helps the soul That and a nice cup of tea. Good luck.

    Oh my, singlegal. I’m so sorry to hear this. Have you talked with the doctor giving you the injections to see what they recommend? Do they have any explanation as to why this may be happening? Maybe they know if it’s possible for the effects to take a little time? Just thinking out loud! We’re wishing you the absolute best. Please keep us posted on everything! -Casey, RheumatoidArthritis.net Team

    Injections help some and not others, depend on the severity. I have learned they are short lived. The more people I discuss this with the more I hear an unsuccessful result. I keep hoping.
