|floroscopy is not a dye. It is a special type of x-ray machine that is used to guide the doctor that is doing the ESI so that he is able to see that he is putting the needles and the steroid injection into the correct place.
Since you are seeing a spine specialist and he/she can not determine what is going on, I would suggest that you seek out another spine specialist, either an orthopedic surgeon that specializes in spines only or a neurosurgeon that specializes in spines only for other opinions.
Unfortunately, many of us with spine problems have had to seek out many, many opinions before finding a spine specialist that can properly diagnose what is wrong with our spines.
Really? Many, many???? Oh no, I could be in this pain forever. Its already been 15 years, I cant take another day.
