      Sorry about your pain.. I can tell you steroids are not the way to go. I have Adrenal Insuffiency because I took steroids after a car accident for pain. Injections. If you get a shot or do steroids a couple times a year your ok. I'm now dependent on steroids trying to get off of them.Pain can be helped alot by cutting out sugar,flour and processed foods. I have been healing this year no longer needing a can and getting to a place where I can bend and move again. Epson salt bathes along with high doses of vitd3 and k2 and magnesium has really helped me in a major way. I hope you get better this summer. Also I use coconut oil and essential oils for my joints.

      What brought it on? I’m so sorry! Mine always hurts but I do get steroid injections 2 - 3 x a year. Which helps .. for a little while.

        @Jane_Austen I am diabetic so steroids cause my blood sugar to spike.

          @meold oh no! I’m so sorry. Can they give you cyclobenzaprene?
