Commented on Back Pain and Methylprednisolone 9 years ago

I took 4 mg dexamethasone 4 x's a day X 2 days and tapered down from there. I believe it was the accumulation of the doses that built up in my body that relieved the pain. I am now a few days off the meds and still feeling pretty good..but not pain free... but it definitely calmed the nerve pain. I was having a sharp pain when I inhaled. Now I am just sore but no severe pain upon inhalation...progress!

Shared experience with Back Pain and Methylprednisolone 9 years ago

I have herniated thoracic and lumbar disc and heal spurs. By day 7 the pain was alleviated which I do not get from nsaids or other otc anti inflammatories. However, I do not know if these pains will return upon cessation. I am on the last two days of the tapering down schedule...so we shall see.
