I had a cortisone shot in my back for lower back pinched nerve. It was at L3 and L4 or L4 and L5, it has been awhile. The shot worked great for about 4 years before symptoms are showing up again. The first time pinched nerve happened overnight. This time it is happening at a slower pace. I will be calling the doctor to see if I should get another shot.

I have had pinches on my left temple since Wednesday morning. I went to the hospital, they asked me all these questions about a pinched nerve, in the meantime I am in pain, and I told him I had it like 5 or 6 years ago. He prescribed me carbamazepine, Sandoz, and I wonder how this is supposed to help the pinched nerve. I still have pinching on my left temple, I don’t know how much longer I have to put up with this annoying pinching; it is not a nice feeling at all.
