Re: Bursitis, cortisteroid shots and whooshie?
Did your doctor ever give you an answer?
I have advanced degenerative disc disease of my C-5/6. My doctor wanted to start me on Prednisone, but I couldn't afford the weight gain (he agreed) so we didn't go that route. I have been doing physical therapy for the last three months and it's better but not resolved (still have a little bit of a stiff neck but the tingling has gone out of my arm). Now they want to do the cortisone injection. I'm not real thrilled with the idea of getting a needle shoved into my neck and have been putting it off.
I wouldn't mind losing an extra few pounds though.
Anyways, inquiring minds want to know how you're doing and what you've learned.
