I was just wondering how long it takes you to get some releif from a shot of steroids. The rheumy gave me a shot on wenesday for my shoulder and I can't tell any difference. I had one in my back about a year ago and by the time I went to bed that night it was already helping.
He had me go get an xray at the hospital but they never got back to me. I'm wondering if it's a bone spur. I wouldn't think a bone spur would improve with a steroid shot. What do you think? I tried to get some answers from the dr today but they closed early on friday. Have you ever had a steroid shot that din't help?
 
thanks smilewinkgrin

Carol,

Like mypearl, I would have thought you would already have some relief. Call your doctor on Monday if it still hurts.

Sorry you keep having so many different dadgum problems pop up.

Hi Carol:

(((((hugs)))))) sweetie I'm sorry you're having such a hard time.  I'd think the shouldler should be feeling better by now.  I'd give your doc a call on Monday and see what he has to say.  I'm hoping that the doctor has some sort of a fix for you.  I'm so sorry to hear about the transplant issues.  You vent and cry all you want and we understand.  Remember we're here for you and I'm jus a phone call away.  Day or night I'm here for you my friend and I truly mean that.

Love,

Barb

Hi Pearl, Pat and Barb, Thanks for the response. I felt it probably should have been better by now as well. I need to get with the dr. monday anyway since he had me get it xrayed. I just never had one that steroids didn't fix the problem before. I have taken about 6- 5 mg pain killers today and they did nothing. I just wish they would put me back on steroids again. Steroids seem to work much better than pain meds. I tried IBprofin but no go there either. Thank you all again and thank you Barb for the offer to cal ya. I sure hope this treatment they gave you helps this time. It's not like we don't get tired enough and then have meds make us more tired.

love ya all thanks again

Carol, I got horrible tendonitis in my shoulder that steroids didn't help and it ended up being from the antibiotic levaquin. It did heal and go away. I dont know if this helps. Just thought I'd give you a heads up on it.
