Yhanks for posting your query to HCM
and numbness that you are having is due to the disc bulge at vertebral
Your doctor has prescribed medicine. Some exercises are also required for this condition.
Regarding your query about using steroids
for ulcerative colitis
, then I would like to tell you that ulcerative colitis is a chronic disease and it needs life long treatment with steroids during flare up.
The dosage for steroids is that it has to be tapered off slowly.
The is the treatment for your problem.
Thanks and take care
