I actually had the injections today in my neck. The doc is looking to see if it might help with TOS, but my PT doesn't seem to think it will. It is supposed to take up to 48 hours to see if it works. I have had to take it very very easy today. The procedure was fine, but I have been in some pain since this morning. It is manageable. Mine was a C4 C5 spinal epidural injection. They do use anesthesia, but keep you awake so they can converse with you.
