Can U say more abt it? Describe your symptoms & what youve already tried. Diagnosis if you have one. Have U done a sleep study? I have chronic pain as well as sleep apnea. I have done 6 epidural steroid injections over 2 years. I don't know if its the same thing. What I do know is that steroids are my go to drug of choice (if it wouldn't kill me, which in all probabilty it would). I have no obvious side effects like swollen face etc from steroids. My body reaction is great! Steroids totally relieve my pain. So it seemed to be a natural for me. It took 6, but it really turned me around eventually. Made my pain a lot better. I was doing other things at the same time. There are a lot of variables, so its hard to be sure what helped but I've been suffering since 1997. Something helped & made a huge difference. So all things being equal like, how, generally do you react to steroids? Maybe take oral steroids & test your reaction first? Make sure you don't have sleep apnea or treat it if you do. If U are like me, have my body etc. I would highly recomend it BUT CAUTION!
I lucked out! Have you heard about
the contaminated steroids that killed a bunch of people & left others with somebody help me. I can't remember the name of the disease/disability they got left with???? Very serious. Fortunately, I did not have the injection of the contaminated stuff. More by luck than brains. You don't hear abt those things til a bunch of people die. Check it out carefully. Find out where the medication is manufactured & being shipped from. Investigate where the contaminated stuff comes from etc. I do think that for me, the excellent result seems to be long acting. But read my words carefully. Dont' rush into it without carefully investingating every part of the medication & your usual body reactions first. Pls let me know what you decide & how it turns out. I really want to know. Puppy love from InventingJoy & the Furry Folk
