I know many of you have been in my shoes. I hope you can give e some ideas of how to deal with it. I have arthritis in my ankles, knees. facet joints and bone spurs in my shoulders. I'm 41 and my pain management doc keeps shooting me up with steroids with the promise that it will work. After 3 rounds on the right side on my l3 and l4 and 1 round on my left there is no change. Plus the steroids make me very sick for about 2 days after the shots. I am seeing the psychologist he wanted me to see. And he thinks that I need to find another doctor. My depression and pain was at such a low and high last night that if my son wasn't here I wouldn't be here telling you this now. If I don't get some sleep and some relief from the pain soon I will go crazier then I already am lol. The research I have done shows that the shots are all the rage now. My body can't take anymore steroids. I can use all the advice I can get. Thank you.
