I have Sarcoidosis and have been on and off steriods since 2006. Due to the degenerative disc disease is it advisable to take the steriod injection in the back? The impression of the report state Degenerative changes in the lumbar spine with multilevel disc abnormalities and neural foraminal stenoses L3-L4 mild spinal canal narrowing, L4-L5 contact/involvement of exting L4 nerve root in the neural foramen bilaterally, and as noted L5-S1 same as the L4-L5 but with left L5 nerve root in left neural foramen.
