Question: pain after iv steroids, normal?

 sick of sick - Tue Oct 27, 2009 11:19 pm

Had 1st dose of IV steriods, Solu-Medrol. Having severe pain in back, legs etc. Is this OK or should seek med attention?

User avatar Hello -- This is neither okay nor is it normal. I'd definitely let the treating physician know what's happening, as this really is contrary to normal expectations.

Hope this is helpful. Please keep us updated.
