I had a privately paid MRI abroad in November which identified lumbar spinal stenosis as well as other disc problems. Ive had back pain and sciatica for at least a year and amvrapidly becoming disabled. 
Im going to pay for spinal steroid injection in  February. Does anyone have experience of these? TIA @Stenova

    I actually don’t but some may be able to help you. 
    I just wanted to say a warm welcome from me to our Scope Family

    Welcome to the community @Stenova, I know there are other members who have gone through exactly what you're experiencing now. I don't know if they received Spinal steroid injections but maybe they'll see this and let you know.

    Let us know how you're getting on. 

    If it's okay to ask, are you okay financially? I know paying medical care out of pocket can be very expensive, have you applied for PIP or anything like that?
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
