I'm terrified :(



I just booked my appointment with the ultrasound tech to get them in my feet next Monday and Tuesday.



The doc told me that it hurts like hell. :cry:



Reassurance?



Anyone had this done and it really didn't hurt as much as they say it does.

I know I have had 2 steroid shots, when I was 16 and sick..but I don't remember the pain. It must not have been too bad =/



Good luck!

I had to get 2. They hurt for maybe 3 minutes then I felt fine.

What kind of steroids?



I've had decadron a lot for strep throat and it's not too bad. I got the steroid shots they give you in premature labor though, and those hurt like hell.

I had steriod shorts with all 3 babies because of preterm labor I got two each time & it only hurt as much as any other shot would... I will be getting them in a few weeks for this pregnancy also... Id rather go through the small amount of pain they cause then have my babies born without their lungs fully developed... My kids were 6 weeks 4 weeks & 3 weeks early & I believe they helped alot because all 3 were healthy & had strong healthy little bodies! =)

I get them on average once a month in the ass for Lupus. They burn and sting like hell to me.

I'm not sure what kind.. But it's for plantar fasciitis and spurs.
