Just venting.....I absolutely hate taking steriods!! I've been having a lot of trouble with my shoulder.. had an mri and xrays. Thier is something going on on the inside.. my rheumy thinks its a small tear.. the otrho gave me an injection which helped the bicep pain a lot .. then PT but within 2 months the pain came back full force so i broke down and started a round of prednisone. . Which is helping but its making me miserable and all my muscles hurt from it. Especially in the back of my neck.. it like trading one evil for another.
When i was first dxd with Rheumatoid Athritis i was on it for 6 months.. it was so horrible.. i wasn't me at all .. angry all the time .. i even asled my rhemy for an anti depressant in hopes it would balamce me out .. she gave me Lexapro wich helped but then i had the problem of trying to wean off it .. it took almost 4 years ... I was really snappy at everyone. . So not me at all .. i felt so bad i vowed to never take them again but i couldn't take the shoulder pain anymore... i can only sleep on my side so i haven't slept for days because of the pain ...i talked to my rheumy friday. ..
Im going to finish the cycle and if it comes back im going to go to the otrho surgeon but these long processes are so tiring!!!
