These shots are given by an pain management Dr. And they help greatly. I also have had two neck surgeries due to bone spurs that had grown into my spinal cord.
I have had a 3 way bypass 2 yrs ago and several other surgeries. I am dealing with occasional shaking , but mostly neuropothy. I AM NOT DIABETIC, thankfully. i have been diagnosed with inflammtion problems since the early 1980's
When I get the steriod shots, within 2 days the swelling in my legs and feet goes completely away. The neuropothy is less and I feel great for a couple of months. i do not take the steriods shots more than 3 months hopefully to avoid loosing my hair and teeth. I want so much to find a way to reduce inflammation naturally. I do not respond to most medications. I have high blood pressure that is under control with metoropolol. I am trying a natural remedy for the neuropothy but not sure if is working, haven't been taking it very long.
Do you have any suggestions?
