I have decreased kidney function. I require anti-inflammatory RX strength drugs. Which is better choice for my kidneys? NSAIDS or Corticosteroids?

I don't think I would recommend any intervention (NSAID, Corticosteroid) until your medical history is fully taken into account. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Suggestions: There are some things you can do to improve your discomfort while you heal. Try the anti-inflammatory naprosyn (naproxen) if you're not taking it already since it's long-acting). I suggest also increasing your water intake a lot (improves blood flow to spasmed tissue), use a microwaveable heat sock to low back several times a day and avoid stretching, as that typically just recreates the mechanism of injury. ...Read more

Ergonomic changes help some people, and massage and trigger point injections also help some people, as you mention.

I've had 4 sets of trigger point injections done. Helps for 3-4 day each time. Should I keep getting them. Really bad muscle spasm pain. ?
Probably not: If they are lasting only 3-4 days at a time, it is not to your benefit to keep getting them. The bigger and more important question is what is the root cause of your pain and what needs to be done to give you more permanent relief from your pain. If you have not had an mri of the spine and soft tissues in that area you may consider requesting one for a more definitive diagnosis and treatment plan ...Read more
