A 25-year-old member asked:

Does an epidural injection in the lumbar or cervical spine for pain cause weight gain?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Richard Guyer

Very rarely: The medication used is some type of steroid. A single dose is unlikely to cause weight gain, though frequent and repeated doses may in some cases.

Most of the weight gained with steroid injection is not FAT, but is a result (especially with repeated injection) of salt retention thus fluid retention. Unless you keep taking steroids for some reason, the extra weight will pretty rapidly go away. You could also ask your doc for a short term diuretic and/or cut down the salt in your diet.

Only 10% of partiulate steroid is absorbed systemically. Unless the interventionist is using unreasonably high doses, there should be no systemic effect.

A 24-year-old member asked:

Which is better for neck pain relief after a car accident - naproxen or hydrocodone?

Dr. Karl Haake

Naproxen: The best medication for pain relief after a car accident is naproxen. Hydrocodone is a narcotic. It may give temporary relief but it is not a long term answer for this type of pain. It can cause dependence and long-term studies do not show any long-term benefit to the use of hydrocodone. When weighing the risks, Naproxen is a better choice.

Infection: You have an illness...Probably viral (because most illnesses are). Strep throat can also produce those symptoms. It is always a good choice to be seen when you feel so awful...If ears hurt too it could be an ear infection and having treatment choices is very helpful. Make an appointment to be seen.

A 24-year-old female asked:

I have visible blood in my urine and went to hospital and they said I had a UTI infection but my left kidney is in bad pain, is this from a uti?

Dr. PHILLIP KIM
General Practice 15 years experience
May or may not: Gross blood in the urine with flank pain until proven otherwise can be a sign of kidney stones. Uti typically starts from the bladder and if left untreated can potentially travel to to the kidneys with serious consequences. Follow where the pain the starts. Stone starts from the back vs UTI from the bladder.
