    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    If the main symptoms are in your leg and buttock, its the nerve.
    if the main symptoms are just in your back, it could be the nerve or the facet joint.

    An injection into the appropriate nerve(s) or joint(s) will work quite nicely.

    Cortisone only lasts a few months in effect, but often its enough to break the cycle of compression --> irritation --> swelling --> more compression --> etc etc especially with concomittant physiotherapy

    see, I told you it wouldn't be bad. yeah, that nerve touch pain is :bounce2: when people say they felt like there was electricity coursing through them, now you can say "uh, no you don't"

    Yeah Rambo- this was like my whole right side was in the light socket for a moment.

    Looks like the shots helped calm the nervous system a bit but 4 weeks in the nerve pinch and spasms from sitting up are back.
    Just have to keep up with the core PT... am probably going to start yoga with a focus on restorative (not flow). My masseuse teaches yoga as well and she's been very helpful so far.
