Lower Lumbar Issues
I have been suffering mild discomfort in my lower back, with excursiating pain in my left buttock and hip which radiates down the front of my left theigh (muscle spasams) and tingling in left chin.  MRI shows L3/L4 protrusion, L4/L5 herination, L5S1 stignosis.  Have seen specialist who has recommended epidural steroid injections and aquatic therapy.  What dangers are there to steroid injections (i.e. effects on the heart, blood pressure, other)?  Will these steroids cause me to gain weight?  I had been in physical therapy for 8 weeks; then left to see a chiropractor because I was not getting better.  Been battling this since mid March 2010, my chiropractor and I escalated by insisting on a MRI and seeing a apine specialist of my choosing.  Feel like I have been taken advantage of since no one previously wanted to escalate for me.  $30.00 per PT session really took a bite out my checkbook.
