FAQ On Pain
This is pain that results from damage to the nerves – muscles and bones may not be directly affected.
A pain is referred when there is pain in one part of your body, but the cause is in another part of the body. For instance, Sciatica where a nerve is irritated or compressed in the bottom of the back giving pain down the leg, Diabetes and Multiple Sclerosis can damage the nerves at multiple points resulting in more widespread pains. Shingles where virus damage to a nerve causes extremely painful sensitivity of the area of skin supplied by that nerve.
It has been known for some years, that some antidepressants may help pain, particularly neuropathic pain. These older antidepressants are called the Tricyclics and examples are amitriptyline, imipramine nortriptyline. They act through complex mechanisms, which may include inhibition of the two nerve transmitters, noradrenaline and 5-HT.
There is evidence that some of the newer antidepressants may also be helpful in some painful conditions.
FAQ On Injections
Epidural steroid injections are one of a number of procedures or injections that may be offered for some types of nerve pain originating in the spine. The doctor offering you the injection should give you detailed information about it if this treatment is being considered.
Nerve blocks is a generic term which may mean different things, such as injections into soft tissues or injections into the spine or the nerves (which include local anesthetic and often steroids).
However, injections alone are highly unlikely to take away your pain and a combination with other treatments is strongly recommended. These injections are considered to be effective if they provide you with long lasting pain relief for several days beyond the duration of the local anesthetic as well as improvement in function.
