  • 17 year old daughter had a depo-medrol shot in right foot, after an hour of receiving shot she got a spasm that went from her foot all the way to her lower back, and has had the backache and spasm now for 3 days. Doctor told me that the shot had nothing to do with it.... I beg to differ!!! my daughter was in so much pain that I was steps away from the ER. she is now on a muscle relaxer and vicodin.

  • Suffer terrible pain from gout in lower extemities (Of which only depo medro injection is used)however have terrible pain in shoulders,neck and Dr now uses Novacain&Depomedo injection which helps,but not for long and the pain returns worse, as I remember only DepoMedro Injection being used only in past and pain goes away for months.Is the Novacain being mixed with DeproMedro not a good combination thus reducing the effectivness of relief from pain? as I remember the Depo Medro injection only of shoulders being long lasting relief,IS NOVACAIN being used causing the reduction of pain relief?
