Smile for pa235

Hiya Linda,

I have done a new thread because Glojer's post was getting overloaded with my info hee hee !!

I have my injections from beneath the collar bone area to where the ribs curve round at the bottom, on each side.

Depending on how bad the flare of my costo is depends on where in that area they are put. I can only have them done approx. every 4 months because it is suggested from data on this treatment that corticosteroids can impede cartilage metabolism and accelerate cartilage breakdown when used in this way.

Hope your pain eases soon L. Take care.

Re: for pa235

Thanks Golden,

I knew there was a protocol for the shots but did not know how often you could get them. The one I had did nothing, that was several years ago.

My costo or whatever comes and goes was doing well for about a month and than wham. My G/p thinks it is referred pain from the artritis in my thorastic spine and also in my cervical plus have herniated discs. But I don't know that would cause more pain if pressure is applied to the area. The therapist I had was very adoment in sayimg I had thorastic outlet syndrome. Who knows.

Thanks again. Be well and stay well.

Hugs, Linda
