You get happy, and random people around you get happy.
that was probably cortizone injections, which is technically a steroid but not an anabolic- ie, does nothing for muscle gain.
Was this a corticosteroid?
I would need to check (also might have to google "corticosteroid") but so far it's done a miraculous job.
These are anti-inflammatory in nature vs anabolic steroids (for muscle growth).
PCT = post cycle therapy, most take clomid and/or nolvadex to get their natural testosterone levels up after a cycle (Brock and Jones both popped for PCT drugs)
Hook me up brah
It feels like a warm comfortable morning. An American morning. One where you might find the soothing laughter of a loving father chasing his kids in the yard with power tools.
It was a corticosteroid. Different animal. Most likely cortisone.
So that's why I didn't wake up looking like Ubereem.
At least the back pain is still there lol.
Cortisone doesn’t really work and ya bad for your joint anyway
What's funny about that is I'm actually 6'4" and about 245lbs with seriously low bodyfat. I've been working out hard for like 15 years now and am in pretty good shape for a regular nonprofessional. I always feel like people think I'm lying when I give my stats lol
"It does what it says on the tin", as an old TV ad in the UK used to say. It can be really effective in reducing inflammation in the targeted area. As I understand it, sometimes that is just what you need- to kick the inflammation so the next stage of the healing process can begin. But yes, it can have nasty side effects, especially with repeated injections.
I’m interested in prp and some other stuff. I used to get cortisone for old inquires but it’s not good for you. Had fake synovial fluid essentially shot in my knee. That’s been working well
I think cortisone is something that needs to be used carefully, on a very limited basis. As I understand it, one shot is probably going to greatly reduce your inflammation, at the cost of various down-sides which are probably going to increase with multiple shots. So if what you need to heal is a single, one-time reduction of inflammation, then cortisone could be just the thing. But if you have underlying issues that are causing the inflammation, or other chronic issues, I think it is just going to mask the symptoms and may lead to something really bad happening. E.g. I am told by the handsome one that tendons and ligaments subjected to repeated shots can spontaneously rupture.
So as I understand it, it has a useful, specific effect. It just shouldn't be misused or overused.
I can go with that
Feels like chewing 5gum
