Help I have a friend who is a gym goer Im not sure of his quantity or how long he has been taking steroids, but stopped recently because he had really bad neck pain. No dr or scan, ultrasound etc showed anything. Put on huge pain killer amounts didnt help alot but felt after about six weeks some relief. Until today when he thinks a prior knee issue has flared up. If this a result of steroid abuse how long before it heals? Im pretty sure he wont touch them again. He can handle all over aches and pains but these last two injuries have had him off work.
Great job. Ive had RA for 7 years now and it is definitely something that will always be a work in progress to cope with. I recently had my pharmacist tell me about a lady she met and her daughter recently was diagnosed. Both her and her mom are having a really hard time dealing with this and I was able to reach out and kind of walk them through my experiences and help them with coping with theirs. At first you feel really alone, but having someone who UNDERSTANDS whats RA really is can be the difference maker. Glad you created this site for people to connect about this . disease 😉
Which made Canseco’s second benefactor — Mike Wallace — all the more important. John Hamlin, a producer at 60 Minutes , had gotten a tip about Canseco’s book from a friend at another network. (The friend couldn’t act on it because his employer was a Major League Baseball rights holder.) Hamlin began calling baseball people and confirming the details. Almost no one would talk on the record, but they suggested that Canseco’s account was true. One of the few allegations Hamlin couldn’t verify was Canseco’s insistence that Roger Clemens was juicing.
