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.
Even after reading the article, I am still a bit skeptical, BUT it also is not very hard to believe either. The internet is filled with garbage, primarily from companies trying to sell you something. Also, people parrot what others tell them on forums and other websites. Eating a lot and exercising seems pretty obvious, but most can’t eat that much because it is possibly harder than the workout is. I know from my experience with a diminished appetite. People eat when they are hungry, because that is what the hypothalamus is telling you to do. After that, it becomes exhausting work.
