I work as a mechanical maintenance fitter and have been off for 6 months now due to severe pain in my left arm and the MRI results revealed severe narrowing in my spine with impingement on the nerve down my arm. After undergoing pysiotherapy and acupuncture with no success I have now been referred to a spinal specialist. The only relief I get now is from my pain medication which consists of codeine/paracetamol and lyrica(pregabalin). Due to money troubles now this is just added stress to my condition.
My physiotherapist informed me the spinal department may look into epidural injections or even surgery. I was hoping people could share with me any experiences with these.
