The procedure was excruciating. Had it in the past and it painful, but tolerable,. This time it was off the charts. Worse, there was zero benefit to my pain condition, so also a waste of a lot of my money. Although it was in the morning, the doctor kept yawning a lot. The other thing, was he said some things to me about my family of origin that were inappropriate, in which he got kind of worked up. Could that have affected the way he inserted the needle into my spine?
