I have been in the bed sick for days and just couldn't seem to get over it so I decided to take my emergency injection of solu-Medrol (125 mg ). I have carried the medicine around for years but never taken it. I could barely move my legs from the waist down. I was ready to try anything to get rid of the nausea, diarrhea, general weakness ect. So, I took the shot. Within an hour I was up walking around with a cane and all of the sickness was gone. I am able to move my legs more than I have in a long time. I plan to talk to my doctor about taking this medicine for my legs. It hasn't helped with the pain but just being able to walk is amazing! If anyone else has had any experience with this medicine please let me know. I wonder how long it will last. Thanks in advance.

    It's interesting stuff. I've no plan to start taking corticosteroids any time soon, but you never know.

  • Any emergency injection of corticosteroid should only be used for an Addisonian crisis. Any other use will put you at a high risk for osteoporosis (outcome not good for us with poor balance and prone to falls), cataracts, etc.

  • Pine_Knot , can you tell us about the results of your injection?

    The more I read about it, I like it.

    How are you feeling now?

  • I know everyone's body responds different to medication but it helped my more than anything I have ever taken. It helped with spasticity and overall tired feeling for at least a week. It also helped with balance a lot. I went from using a wheelchair to a cane for a week. I have a doctors appointment on the 23rd of this month and I plan to talk to him about the injections extensively. I will post more about it at the time.
