Thank you for your question. Injections can help limit the pain according to some physicians and patients, but they are not generally thought of as a permanent solution. Your specific solution may need to include further discussion with your doctor
or additional specialists regarding what the next step can be to improve your symptoms. The fact that you have been undergoing so much for such a long period of time suggests that you may be ready to discuss alternative solutions. There are times that a second opinion
can help to provide you with different ideas or the information that you are after. Specifics can vary between different people, and so please speak with your doctor or get a second opinion about the questions that you are asking to make sure that you get the care that you need.
