In brief: Many things

Epidural steroid injections work best with pain that radiates down one or both legs from a disc bulge.
Back pain by itself or muscle spasms don't respond to the epidural as well. Your pain may be coming from facet joints, sacro-iliac joints or many other causes. Talk to your doctor about where she thinks the pain is coming from and what other options there may be for treatment.

In brief: If you've already..

..Spent time receiving both chiropractic and pain medicine treatments, there is one or more presumptive diagnoses (reasons) for your discomfort.
Being clear about what those are (by reviewing this information with those doctors) is suggested. They can direct your further reading or offer to connect you with a neurologist.
