I feel great! My back feels so much better!!
I had to discontinue my RA meds for about 4-5 days prior to the procedure and I'm wondering if being off them is what is making me feel better or if it's the overall feeling of the steroids throughout my body that is making me feel better overall. The good doc gave me a lot of steroids in this round of four facet joint injections on each side for a total of eight shots.
Again, my back feels so much better, but I almost have a little steroid high going, too.
My hands, wrists and shoulders feel so much better, too. The nodules on my hands have gone down in size and hardly hurt at all when pressed on.
I'm feeling inclined, however, to stay off the RA meds for a bit and see how long this lasts. There have been times when I've wondered if my RA meds were making me worse. I guess I'll figure it out in a few days if I start flaring, huh?
Anyone else ever feel this way or try stopping your meds to see what would happen?
