I am scheduled for cervical epidurals for tomorrow and I am having cold feet around it after looking out on the web:
My mri and EMG showed a pinched nerve and my pain doctor suggested this

any experience / advice appreciated

Having no knowledge of cervical epidurals I cannot offer any advice on this, only say good luck with it.

Hope it goes well.

I have a harmless spinal tumour and my nerves play a few tricks on me occasionally, but no pinching, nothing visible...

Epidurals are steroid injections? My first orthopedist didn't accept the fibro-explanation and tried hyaluronic acid injections for my back pains, under CT, starting lumbar. It gave me a facial sunburn and hurt for weeks after. She said I should continue all the same. My wife said no. I let my wife convince me and that was also the last straw there anyway, as nothing she did helped and a lot of things hurt.
