Steroids with highly concentrated will effects our body is it True
I had a steroid shot into a very unstable and painful back about ten days ago, I live with 24/7 Hair Afire pain, the steroid shot gave me 30 hours of relief, so I disagree with you. That shot gave my life (if only for 30 hours) a bit of normalcy! We, who suffer with chronic pain will do anything deemed legal, medically speaking, to help ourselves. Including steroids!
Best wishes to you,
I was given a 160mg shot of depo-medrol into my right deltoid during spinal surgery. To say that the effects of this shot have ruined my life would be an understatement. I also have muscle atrophy in my shoulder because the idiot Dr injected it into my deltoid.
Side effects have been, 30 pound weight gain in one month, severe depression, hot flashes, mood swings, pain throughout my entire body. I was not informed I had this shot until I asked the following day after surgery. I would have never in a million years agreed to having depo-medrol! It has ruined me! Don't do it!
