Thanks Jess, I think it is a problem without solution, sad to say. For all the things out there dealing with inflammation is a tricky thing, especially for anyone with history of bleeding. I keep searching hoping to find an answer but...
I am sorry you also have pain. the prednisone is only a very short term solution, I think more of a confirmation that my pain is from an inflammatory process...
So ice is good still, I do get a lot of relief from it.. Prednisone will be tapered off in a couple of days.
Hi I would love to be able to tell you what medication is and isn't safe and works best however it would be really dangerous to try as I am advised not to take ibuprofen but others do different drugs interact with others in ways that can be really harmful
They wanted me to take prednisone but I was advised against it so am in agony but you have been prescribed it so I really would go and see you dr and speak to them as I wouldn't want to give out this kind of advice and be responsible for naking a person really ill
Hope you find something and the pain eases soon xxx
I am 4 years post SAH and vasospasm. Right now I am working to become more comfortable from chronic back and neck pain. I have just learned it is causing nerve pain which up until now I have been blaming on my SAH. I think I blame everything on it truthfully. It is also causing numbness down my leg. It seems to be chronic inflammation, did not suspect this.
So I have been seeing a Neuro who has diagnosed me with a pinched nerve in my neck, part of the problem but also has started me on a short course of Prendisone. Well the Prendisone has made quite a difference. I realize it is not a long term answer as it will cause a lot of side effects. Up until now since my SAH I have only used Tylenol, which I think is not very effective, and lots and lots of ice to quiet my back and neck. I almost never bother with Tylenol.
Any thoughts, or info on post SAH safe meds, vitamins anything that helps with chronic inflammation.
thanks for any suggestions or thoughts I will continue with my Neuro but I fear I might be dead ended and the pain will return with the end of the prendisone...
Thank you Daffodil, that has been a great comfort.
It must be very different as I only need to stay in for one night!
I hope your check up went okay.
I know how you feel about the scans although it’s good they are being so thorough and monitoring.
