I got my first shot yesterday out of a series of 3 and I'm not expecting miracles today..but there is no difference in pain level. still taking Advil and icing it. I asked him how long until it starts completely working he said after the 3rd shot, a couple of weeks, I'll know when it stops. He did say its the best med out there. and that he would take it if he had to. A friend of mine knows a few people that had excellent results, even her husband. He's a gymnast and he had no pain and was able to go back to his regular lifestyle but it took some time after the series of shots were done. the waiting game SUCKS! The shot itself wasn't bad to get. they sprayed it with numbing solution and all I felt was pressure. I'm not too worried overall. Its just the waiting gets me..
