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.
Steroids killed nine-year-old Lexie McConnell after only five and a half weeks. In August 1993, Lexie was diagnosed as having toxoplasmosis. The consultant put her on 80 mg per day of prednisolone. Immediately, she suffered severe side effects, huge weight gain , terrible pains, holes in her tongue and black stools. After nearly a month, at her parents' pleading, the doctors quickly lowered the dosage to 60 mg, 40 mg, 20 mg. In excruciating pain, Lexie was taken to a hospital, where it was discovered she'd contracted chickenpox. Four days later, she died. A few years later, another eye specialist declared that a simple course of antibiotics could have cleared up her infection. The above excerpt is from Ursula Kelly's site
After ten years of working out regularly and seeing less than satisfactory results, I spent three and a half years devoting little time to fitness and put on fifty pounds of fat. I had tried spending two hours a day in the gym, several different diets, and countless supplements that promised to help me reach my muscle building goals. After seeing the testimonials paired with the 90 day money back guarantee, I decided that I had nothing to lose and purchased the system. I lost a half of an inch of off my waist after just the first week! I achieved better results in 9 weeks than what I had achieved over the past year of working out and dieting. It is awesome to see how so many people are amazed at the results. Just look at the definition in my abs and obliques! What is also incredible is that I have gained over 10 pounds of muscle mass to go along with the 13% decrease in body fat. This system is the real deal and I can't recommend purchasing it enough. The price of this program is a bargain to achieve the kind of life changing results that you will undoubtedly see if you follow the system as it is described. Thank you for all of your assistance throughout the past months Francesco; I couldn't have transformed my body without your help.
