headaches, acid reflux, fatigue and muscle aches. are these symptoms due to my 3 month lupron (leuprolide) depot injection?

Maybe: All these are symptoms that patients complain on Depo-Provera Lupron (leuprolide) but have not been substantiated by the company. My experience is that when you take hormone replacement back they get better. Ask your md if you could have add-back therapy, although typically this is done after 6 mo of Depo-Provera Lupron (leuprolide) for endometriosis or cancer.

Why did my doctor prescribe muscle relaxants? I need pain relief!

Pain is complicated!: There are several types of pain including nerve pain and muscle pain. Although they often feel the same to a patient, a doctor knows that trying to clarify the type of pain often points to a more helpful solution. Muscle relaxants are often more effective than pain killers and so can be more appropriate for certain types of pain.

Acid reflux: Acid reflux typically causes stomach pains without nausea. Avoid onions, garlic, and tomatoes. Let at least three to four hours go by between your last meal for the day and when you go to bed.
Dr. Randall Bock

empiric therapy is quite useful, i.e. attempt treatment with liquid antacid. If that makes the pain go away you have essentially diagnosed the problem as acid - related, either GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease, "heartburn"/esophagitis) or (more rarely) peptic ulcer.

What is the best steroid to heal a ucl hand injury and atrophied thumb muscle?

Dr. Joel McClurg
Specializes in Orthopedic Surgery
Won't work: While steroid injection may help with the symptoms of an ulnar collateral ligament injury they will not facilitate healing or improve outcome. High grade acute ucl injuries usually require repair, while chronic high grade injuries usually require reconstructions for joint stabilization. Rehabilitation after repair or reconstruction will usually help reverse muscle atrophy.
