Hi, I was given a Steroid shot by my Rhuemy Dr. last week for left side pain that I've had for a years now off and on but this pain was very differant from before. Pain started 2/1/11, on left side of my torso then spread down to foot, w/in a few days, I couldnt get up or walk, when I did try because I could'nt stand just laying there, my hip/leg felt soo heavy and was very painfull. The worse pain I've ever had on left side.
I felt like I needed a cane, but I would walk and my leg just couldnt lift up, but I made myself do it. pain last all month until last week of Febuary, it subsided and I seen my Dr., I asked him if this was from the Fibromyalgia, he said "no", he gave me the shot, but it did not help at all, felt the same.
Dr. said it was for the inflamation.
Has anyone had a Steroid shot and what did it do for you?
