It alwys seems to work that way for me, I'll be really sick and/or in pain but as soon as i get to the doctors I'm feeling better, especilly if I'm vomiting, but the moment I leave the doctor's, I'm feeling sick again. Then I'm always scared the doctor wont beleive me, just doesnt make any sense.

Awe geezee, steroids??? so very sorry you've going to be on steroids, just becareful with them
and it'll help to take them with food..I hope the steroids can reduce your immflammation (SP?)
Geezee if he thought steroids then maybe he should've given you the trigger point injections or
nerve blocks as they have steroids in them which would accually target the area better...
Next time paint a red bull's eye on your back.....might help him pin point the area faster........
OOps so sorry, not like me to get mad at a doctor.......but geezee oral steroids, man alive...
anyways sure hope you get results from this doctor...
I hope you can catch a low pain day soon...
lots of soft hugz..............
Sorry I got angry about your doc, was not like me, I hope he treats you better in the future, but to
give you oral steroids??? did he give you any pain medications as well to help???

Oh no, its like the car thing. Your car makes this awful noise, take it in to the garage, well of course not, its not going to make that horrible noise for them to hear lol. Then the mechanic looks at you lie, what did you say this car is doing.

Uh oh, steroids, sheesh, if you are hurting they will help those nerves out for sure. My Sis has a back problem with terrible nerve pain. She came down with pneumonia and dr put her on steroids and she woke up one morning and the months of back pain was gone thanks to those steroids. Hugs, Susie

Knocking on all the wood I can find, but I'm really not hurting like I was.  Only been on the steriods since Monday and well...... knock... knock....knock... its I think helping.... I've been off the heating pad too since I burned my back which has been over a week now (wooo hoooo like a junkie LOL sorry)  I've told everyone to let me know if I get mean, but so far so go. No on pain meds, I was trying to remember everything (I forgot my list) and that didnt cross my mind, til I talked with my hubby and he fused at me cause I'd forgot.  I think I got a little side tracked they did an EKG on me (something I've never had done before except when I had surgery, and I looked ( yea I know dont look if you dont want to know) and it said said something like sinus tachycardia, which I didnt know what it was til I looked it up on the internet. So I was a little off kilter when he came in.  But I'll call him tomorrow if I think I'll need some.  I've been on naproxin (sp) for months and months.  I've taken Cexebrex (sp) and it didn't zippo for me.  I think thats why he might have done the steriods.  I've not been on any since just before my surgery in April of 2007 (dang 2 years).  Ya know it took almost 2 years for the first doctors to take me serious, now 2 more for someone to actully listen to me and do something that HELPS!!!!!...(sorry for the frustration) I've just seen my hubby in pain since the motorcycle wreck in 1989 and then for me to have to go through it, forgive the pun, but it hits a nerve LOL. 

Well bossman is hollaring so I'd better go for now.  Thanks for all the hugs and understanding.
