Up the treatment: I see in your medication list that you are taking Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) an h1 antihistamine, and were prescribed a steroid cream. You can try an over the counter h2 antihistamine Loratadine along with the above. You may need to be switched from the steroid cream to steroids by mouth, so a followup with your doctor would be the next step. If you have lip/mouth symptoms, go to Emergency Dept. ...Read more

Adrenal insuffic: After steroid use, a sluggish adrenal response to acth is common, and can last quite a while. Your acth stim was normal at one point, now is delayed? Your situation is complex.

You'd know: You're a responsible adult. You say you have Addison's, but you're not being treated. This is life-and-death, not "pop" medicine or something to self-diagnose because of something you read on the internet. You owe it to yourself, and to those who love you, to get an ACTH stimulation test or some other reliable method of diagnosing Addison's, then IF you have it, to be an informed, proactive person ...Read more
Hi. I have small patches of bald spots in my beard area. I have received steroid injection in these places and my thyroid test are ok. Please advice.
Alopecia areata: Localized alopecia areata does respond well to kenalog (triamcinolone) injections into the areas of hair loss. These are usually done once a month until all the hair regrows. Thyroid antibodies and parietal cell antibodies need to be in addition to thyroid functions. This is done not because thyroid issues cause alopecia areata, but because they can occur together and we don't want to miss thyroid problems. ...Read more
Should a person with hyper thyroidism take typical thyroid medication like Synthroid (thyroxine)?
Usually not: Usually, a person with hyperthyroidism has too much thyroid hormone in her body. One would take Synthroid (thyroxine) (synthetic hormone) to make up for a lack of enough thyroid hormone due to HYPOthyroidism. A person with HYPOthyroidism who becomes hyperthyroid due to taking too high of a dose of Synthroid (thyroxine) might be asked to take Synthroid (thyroxine) (at a lower dose) even though she is temporarily hyperthyroid. ...Read more
Maybe, maybe not: Steroid injections can take up to 7-10 days to start working, so be patient. I've seen patients where the injection told 2 weeks to work. If you get no relief, whatever they injected is probably not causing your pain so your docs will need to look for another cause. ...Read more

Not much: The worse part of an epidural injection is typically the local anesthetic administered to numb the skin. After that the needle typically feels like pressure.

Complications can be bleeding, infection, nerve damage and paralysis, but these are extremely rare. ...Read more

Your doctor will likely prescribe corticosteroids taken by mouth. Corticosteroids are often started even before a biopsy confirms the diagnosis. Aspirin may also be recommended.
Most people begin to feel better within a few days after starting treatment. However, you need to take medications for 1 - 2 years. The dose of corticosteroids is slowly reduced. ...Read more
Steroid Injection: Typically, a long acting version of a steroid is used and is mixed with a local anesthetic to minimize the pain at the injection site and also within the joint. You should start to experience pain relief very soon after the injection. I'm not sure what your current limitations are, but after the injection, you limitations should be fewer and you should feel better. ...Read more

I agree: I agree with your doctor, you should avoid surgery and look for alternative pain generator diagnosis, the injections have therapeutic, diagnostic as well as prognostic information if shots don't give you temporary relief I would consider your pain generator as unknown, unknown pain generator is an absolute contraindication for surgery in my practice.
