Downing A Few Pain Killers Might Be The Answer But As I Have Never Had Such Problems What Else Might It Be Doing

Not To Be A Drama Queen But Like A Want Me Head To Fall Of Next .... As I Have A Inverted Slipped Disc .... I Know How Pain Full Bone Stuff Can Be

I take clenil steroid and still have other issues. Get your G.P to check you over and ease your mind.


Steroids reduce inflammation - I have just come off them after 20 months and I ache all over - they helped my breathing but also masked the aches and pains of getting older but they can also cause muscle weakness. I would go and see your GP as zoo56 suggests.


Maybe a visit to your GP will help

Hi Thanks For All Great Answers .... Will Have To Sort Something

Cheers :)


The levels of steroids in inhalers are not going to cause problems with the joints. In the web link "daz" has referred to it mentions how steroids affect the joints - but these are oral steroids such as prednisalone - not steroid inhalers. Lots of discussion on other blogs about the side effects of steroids.



Hi Thanks @Mark

Was Worried Didn't Want My Head To Fall Off Will Have Look On Blogs

Cheers All The Best :)
