Hi all, Nova here..19 from PA. I'm also on the Ulcerative Colitis forum now. Pleasure to meet you all.
I have inherited severe allergies from both parents. My doctor has been testing and treating me since I was 8 or 9... he says I'm among the worst patients he's treated.
My treatment currently is weekly injections, Singulair, Benadryl, sprays, inhalers and in the springtime I usually get a DepoMedrol and/or Cortisone shot.
Well! I got my cortisone shot, and my DepoMedrol shot..... and the Depo is supposed to last for a long period of time.... it's been 7 days and my symptoms are back. The cortisone shot wore off in only two days.
I don't know what the hell to do with myself. I'm not respondent to ANY of these treatments.
What do doctors do when the patients are not respondent to treatments?
