i had two injections with a month apart.  Not only did the injections help minimally but they were not worth the severe pains in my stomach, constipation, chronic fatigue, insomnia, water retention, bladder pain and 10 lb weight gain.  I find it hard to believe that this is the best pain doctors can come up with.  Everyone knows the dangers of prednisone and yet they fail to tell you that this is exactly whats in the injection.  When I asked for a printout, the staff advised they didnt have one.  I believe the dr did his best but every patient should be given a printout with the exact name of the medication being injected.  Not a copy of generic warnings.  Never again...
