    I have had terrible heel soreness for a year, and no dr. could figure out what the problem was and how to treat it. Finally, a new podiatrist told me to "test" the medrol. After 2-3 days -- my heels are almost normal again! It has really been a miracle! Finally!

    I have been diagnosed with Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis (lung allergy). Cause to date: unknown. It has helped my breathing and I've experienced no side effects. I started with 16 mg and after one month am on 8 mg every other day.

    I lost range of motion in my neck and experienced terrible pain with movement. It felt as though I had broken a vertibra. Within 2 days of taking this medication I felt relief and on the 4th day was back to work. I experienced nausa and vomiting but when I layed still these symptoms weren't a problem. The results was well worth the side effects.
