I have had cervical steroid injections and have noticed quite a weight gain
I feel as though I want to eat most of the day. I have never been this way and am 5'7 155lbs. I was 145 when I got the first inject. gained 5lbs and then had another inject 6 weeks later. Now another 5lbs!. Starting to stress out because I have severe arthritis and 2 ruptured discs in my neck. These injections were the only pain relief I have found, but I don't want to be obese to keep the pain away. I take methodone for my back pain which helps. It just doesn't work for my neck. Any ideas here?
