: It appears you possibly could have had one too many steroid injections. Steroid overdosing is relative to the individual, but if less than 120mg of Depomedrol with at least 2 week intervals in-between, usually there is no adrenal suppression. But I have seen this with much less steroid or steroids given too close together. The effects of adrenal suppression last about 2-3 weeks. If you become severely weak from adrenal suppression, occasionally hospitalization is required. Keep in close contact with both your family doc and your pain doc.

: : Thanks for the advice I will check into it. Like I said I am new here to all this and have been through alot and now I have 2 doctors that can't determine what I have gotta love w/c for setting me up with em LOL.
