I’ve had severe upper neck pain due to whiplash and being a hair stylist thru the years,so for the first time I had the cortisone injections and at first it was very painful but after about a week I hardly had any pain at wasn’t sure if I was imagining it because I would have pain daily,I couldn’t remember what it was like to not have pain was more tissue damage,so that’s why I think it still hurt a little,but not as much,it was like putting a band-aid on a raw open shall see how it long it lasts,but I highly recommend it,cuz if your gonna take pain meds your just covering up the pain as is with this,only temporary relief,but probally healthier?
Q. Had FMS for almost twenty years now, tried almost everything. Is Lyrica in the "steroid" family? Any one in this community could help me? I have given my few questions to find out an answer. I Had FMS for almost twenty years now, tried almost everything. I'm considering Lyrica but I'd like more info. Is Lyrica in the "steroid" family? If you go on Lyrica for a while & see no improvement with pain, is going off of it a big deal like with other med's, or can you simply just stop taking it? I take Ambien, will that have any interactions? I'm seeing my Doc about this at the end of the month, but I was hoping to get some personal experiences about it. Thanks for any thoughts! Thanks for your answers, keep them coming! A. according to this-
there is a moderate interaction. that means you can take them both but be checked regularly for depression of breath.
