Can someone please help me? I am in so much pain. On Thursday I went to my doctor because I had pain in both my ankles. It was swollen and very painful. She told me to take 3 advils 3 times a day. It helped alittle but last night it got worst.
Last night, I went to the ER. He confirmed it was tendonitis. He gave me a steroid (Prednisone). He told me to take 3 pills all at once. Each pill was 20mg. I took that this morning. He also gave me pain pills. I just took one of those.
I had tendonitis in my arm, wrist, hips and now my ankles. I've been putting ice packs on it and I use the foot massage with warm water.
When I had tendonitis in my wrist, I had it for 2 years. Finally I went to an orthopedic surgeon who gave me a cortizone shot for instant relief.
The ER doctor told me it can take 2 weeks to heal. How can it heal at all when I walk on my feet?
It's so painful that I walk on my hands and knees.
Does anyone know how long before these pills will work and how long it will take for it to stop hurting?
