An epidural steroid injection places this powerful anti-inflammatory medication directly around the spinal nerves. Traditionally epidural injections were administered without any special equipment, by inserting the needle by feel in the area around the spinal nerves. More recently epidural injections have been administered with the aid of imaging tools to allow your physician to see the needle going to the proper location. Either real-time x-ray called fluoroscopy, or CT scan can be used to 'watch' the needle deliver the medication to the proper location.
Steroid users may think that side effects and adverse reactions to steroids happens to someone else.

Increased studies of steroid shot side effects are now being published in medical journals – not only for individuals with a history of long term steroid use, but even short-term. Of major concern is the development of steroid dependence.
I have a suspicion, after reading many of your notes on injectable steroids, that I seem to have developed a type of “tendonitis” in my upper arms due to multiple elbow steroid injections. I have had 4 in my left elbow (worst arm) and 2 in my right, about 5yrs ago. I have been having this tendon problem for about one year now, and not one doctor can figure out what’s wrong. One actually said “it seems like tendonitis”, but no cause or cure was suggested. The steroid injections is the only common denominator here. The right arm is affected as well, but not nearly to the degree of the left (and I’m right handed, so maybe the strong arm is less affected, plus I only had 2 injections there). Is there hope for acute tendonitis in my bicep/tricep area?
