Has anyone ever had shots in there back? Not sure what they are called

I have Dengenratve Disk Disease, lumbar bone spurs, buldging (sp) disk.
And the dr is wanting to do lumbar shots, I told him that I'd think about it and tell him at my next appt. but that sounds very painful.

  • My husband has a bad back and every 6 months he gets a couple of shots in the spine. It helps the pain go away..His disks all of the are real bad. Will be in wheel chair in I think they said 7 to 10 years..
