Ohhhh what was I thinking.... I just knew, knew in my head not to hope these rackum frackum brackum steroids would work, well working but not stopping the pain.  I started them on Monday, and the pain started to ease up some, I could get up and down with out grittin my teeth and was able to do some things around the house.  (wooo hoo for as long as it lasted) I went to bed around 10 last nite little discomfort, but nothing tooo bad, I was really starting to think hey, I might be completely wrong about this, it is inflamation and these things are working THANK GOD!!!!! then BAM 1 am, I'm jolted out of a sound sleep. The pain would have doubled me over if I wasnt already in the fetal position.  So from 1 til 6 I think I saw every 15 minutes, I got up and took some Goodies, because my silly self forgot to ask for pain pills when I was there on Monday.  What a dummie!!!!!! So I think around 5:30 to 6:00 I went to sleep and then the alarm goes off at 7:15 woo-hoo smhair .  Aint I just lucky.  Made it through the nite... now at work, and find out my boss' Mother passed away at 4AM this morning.  So now I'm feeling guilty for thinking about asking if I can go home, which now is completely out of the question. 
I've called the nurse and let a message for her to ask my doctor if he can call me in something for the pain.  I'm just hoping he will.  Since its the first time I've seen him and didnt ask while I was there, I'm scared he wont. 
Ok, I've vented tooo much, I'm sorry about this....just sleepy and I think the steroids are making me grrrrrry and on top of all that... mother nature comes LOL... What else can hit me.... NO!!!!! never mind I do no want to know....
Thanks again

Be carefull with the steriods I had a bad reaction (roid rage) and ended up in the state hospital now that I know that I have this reaction makes it easier to deal with. Now they will only give me steriods for a live or death situation. Hope you get some well deserved relief i have my fingers crossed that you some meds.

Good luck

Hi troublemaker, I was on steroids for 2 years, found them fantastic for background pain all that nigglely pain just disappeared but useless for any major pain. Plus I really put on weight and I just couldn't sleep on them. Every morning at 3.30am up I woke, wide awake, brain in gear rearing to go. I'd have to get up and read. Came off them a few months ago and slowly but surely I am losing the weight and now I'm innundated with pain from multiple sites. Trying to find other solutions. My gut feeling is they are good short term but can cause major damage long term. What strenghth are you on? Did your doc come through?

I'm not sure of the name of the ones he put me on, but I'm on then for 10 days.  Hubby hates it, says " I'm gonna be "MEAN" lol, told him to bite me.... but any way yea I called yesterday morning and the nurse called and they called in some pain meds.  Darvocet (even though they half work for me, Vicodin is the only one I've taken so far that gives the longest relief... well... relief isnt a good word, but it knocks out the pain enough I can work), but beggers can not be choisers (sp).   I can tell a difference though, I can say that, the pain is only 3/4 there LOL... What a way to have to look at pain.  Never in a million years would I have thought I'd think like that.

Well gots to scoot, boss' Mom passed yesterday morning and everyone and their brother is calling, the phones are ringing off the hook.

See ya soon
