Corticosteroids

Corticosteroids

I'm taking 20mg per day and getting some relief. What are the long term effects of taking that dosage?

They can cause diabetes if taken too long at a high dosage. If your doctor is prescribing it, I wouldn’t worry too much.

Injection therapy

Injection therapy

I got a call that I was taken off the wait list after over a year for the pain clinic near me, and that if I'm interested in "injection therapy" I should call for an appointment. I'm just not sure.
