Re: arthritis of spine w/herniated discs

Hi,I am sorry to say I have a friend that is now in a wheel chair from the steroid, depro midol. It is a common steroid used. Aparently she was alergic. It can happen to anyone and I don't believe these are safe. I think they are as bad as the oil based meylograms they used to use. I also know other people who have got some relief! I had it in my knee and it did NOT help. Hope you make the right decision for you. It is only a bandaid on the problem. Can a person get these shots for the rest of thier lives?God be with you. kathryn2
