Yes the plan may include injections in the spine
first of all thanks for the query and trusting me .
If you have not lost your past record of stenting you can see the operative notes on discharge card in which the surgeon must have written whether the stent was plastic or metallic.
But even if you have lost the past record then do not go for MRI
You have not mentioned any report of blood test
e.g fasting blood sugar level , fasting ESR
level ,fasting CRP level.
These test are very important especially before cortizone shots in shoulder and both wrists due to carpal tunnel .
So get your these tests done send me reporting only then further treatment can be advised.
You have not mentioned about fever
, weight loss
, history of trauma in running days .
You can also have your ultrasound
of shoulder done by discussing it with your doctor and then send me reports.
I am assuming that you are taking medicine which your doctor prescribed too you and not by yourself especially adderall
, because it need strict monitoring by doctor.
Till then apply hot packs in cervical ares for 30 mins in morning and in evening .
Take painkiller + muscle relaxants only while discussing your doctor.
Also you must avoid heavy work or lifting weight or lift & transfer patients at-least for a month.
I hope you have get your answer.You are welcome to ask any type of health query in future also.
Thanks for your query. Be positive in life, believe in god and trust your doctor.
