I've had 3 epidural steroid shots. I am getting an SI injection soon and sometime after that I have surgery for placement of a central line. I'm scared out of my mind! I have Physical Therapy 2x weekly too and I am not even used to leaving the house! I am so overwhelmed! I had a dx of with Autonomic Instability this week due to my Post Concussive Syndrome. I can't deal with this. I don't know how people deal with this.

I'm raising my Cymbalta. Lowering my Diazepam and Risperidal. This whole week is a mess!

Hi there.  I am with ya... just had my 3rd epidural steroid shot Tuesday, going for SI next then cervical spine epidurals.  We are waiting to see how these work before discussing stim implant or pain pump.  It's scary as hell.  I have been having so much anxiety, but I'm afraid to ask for any meds to help with that.  I wish I had advice for you, I don't.  All I can do is offer you support, hugs and the knowledge that you're not alone.

Thank you for commenting on my journal. I had Physical Therapy today. I am crying from the pain. The pain management doctor talked about numbing patches that my insurance won't pay for and a TENS device that I can't use. I've accepted that pain management is just not going to happen for me. I fell yesterday and landed bent into a wall which hurt my neck and shoulder. It worsened my Sciatica too.

My anxiety is so bad I never want to leave the house again.
