I had same problem. I took Ginger pills, also antacid with magnesium. It really helped a lot for me. I am not keen on methylprednisolone , but when I need it, I do take it, horrible side effects, nausea, bloating, dizziness, insomnia, roll on Friday, I take my last am pill. I do go for acupuncture which helps with nausea, also get massage twice a week. Hang in Lizzy, try stay off Ibuprofen, know it's hard when we're in pain. Moist heat helps too, ice packs and get Ginger tea , a must for arthritis or muscle skeletal problems. Best of luck : ) .
