“HiHoHiHo Steroid Shot for Me”


Description from puppychick labratbecky: For the first time ever, instead of dreading these horrible shots, I am anxiously awaiting this one. I have had about 20 shots &/or needles in my back for issues on mostly my left side SI joint. I used to be able to tolerate the shots but I have developed a fear of them because of how painful they can be. BUT... I have had an inflamed right SI joint (new side going to hell) for 2+ months now and getting worse. Tomorrow I get a steroid shot in that joint and I can't wait!! Wish me luck!

    Here’s a nature-made ornament hanging from my deck swing. It is a steel coil with a big glass marble that appears to climb and descend the spiral as the wind blows it around. Jana gave it to me for my birthday. Mother Nature decided to frost it for us. :)

    2+ months!!! Holy cow, Becky!
    I know first hand what SI pain can bring.
    Have you tried chiropractic adjustments? I know chiropractors are scary to some folks but mine keeps me going. Couldn’t live without her!
    Best of luck with the steroid shots. Never had one, don’t want one!

    Love the colors in your pick!
    Love, love that nature-made ornament too!

    Ouch! Yes, they do help, but sometimes there are alternative methods that work and don’t hurt. Love the pick!

    Thanks for all the love and well wishes! I have done PT for these and TENS treatments. Chiropractic medicine has left me in worse pain so I avoid it. I actually have extra cervical ribs,little rib bone extensions from my cervical vertebrae (look like devil horns on an X-ray which I love! :) ) and chiropractic adjustments mess those up but good. Trust me, I have been to ortho docs, PT, rehab, pain clinics, etc. and this baby needs to have an injection to reduce the swelling around one of my nerves.

    I know exactly how you feel Becky. The cortizone shots never worked for me though and the doc I had didn’t want to admit defeat until I had to sit through twenty-two trigger point shots. I’ve also had three different spinal injections. I’m with a new doctor now (have been since the last one said the shots weren’t working because I didn’t want them to.) and she wants to try a caudal injection for my lumbar/sacral/coccyx area. If that doesn’t work there are two other types of injections to try. If none of them work then I’m poop out of luck. Soooo yeah, I most definately understand the anxiety issue. You’re in my thoughts and prayers. I hope everything goes well with your procedure and that it gives you the relief you need.
