Re: Methylprednisolone ?
I was prescribed this a few months ago to see if it would help with severe back pain (from stenosis, ruptured discs). I had already tried other anti-inflammatories so my doc said give this a try. Well for me, it worked GREAT the first 2 days, then my back pain started coming back again. And after 4 days, i started getting what felt like a lupus flare. The flare only lasted a few days though.
I think if i was on the high dose every day, it might have kept my back pain under control, but unfortunatley this cant be taken every day.
I also had the epidural injections. It worked good for my sciatica but for me, they wore off after one month. I hope you have longer pain relief from them? Let us know how it goes.
