... but yet they keep prescribing them to me. Is there a limit to the amount I can take or is there serious risks in continuing? I'm waiting on insurance to approve fusion of 3 disc in my cspine. Steroid is the only thing helping the pain.
You need a really good acupuncturist. Acupuncture has none of the side effects and all of the opportunities for pain relief. This site talks all about the eventual side effects of things like bone thinning, skin thinning, bleeding through your blood vessels by using Medrol.
I'm taking 1 dose pak of Medrol for screwing up and overexerting my upper back. But it's my months of acupuncture that kept me from needing the 2 disk fusion in my neck 6 months ago.
