Thank you all I'm almost done with my medication and it was working great until today. I work at a grocery store and we had truck today. All my pain is back I just don't know what to do. The va doc said I shouldn't need anymore for a month or two. I'm not even done and it's all back. Maybe I pushed it to hard cause i was feeling good i don't know.
I recently was prescribed prednisone.It has helped me some. I’ve previously taken a medro dose pack. Make sure you take it all. I’ve only noted a slight gain in my weight. Have to have frequent tests on your liver function but hey with everything else I take I have to anyway. You may have to discuss with your doctor how it is not helping you now. Good luck.🦋
Painwarrior, do you have a diagnosis of "long term steroid use" in your medical records? I do and it's there because of the multiple versions of long term steroids I've been given since 2001 (including my asthma meds with steroids). I asked my PCP why it's there and he said because of the effects long term use of steroids can have on the body. I was like, "Wow, I'm not sure I want it!". I tried to come off my asthma inhaler but can't because of breathing difficulty. 😞
