I have been suffering with piriformus syndrome for the last year and the pain is excruciating. I have had several (over 8) injections of steroid, lidocaine and one of toradol. All of these injections have been done either under xtay in the hospital or under ultrasound in my Dr.’s office. Thay have not given much relief so i inquired about botox about 8 months ago. So i was referred to another Dr. In the same practice. I met with him 4 weeks ago and he thought i might get some relief with the botox. I was scheduled today and went in this morning. This Dr. Was going to have me lay on the table and give me a botox injection in my piriformus muscle. I asked how he was going to find it. He said by pushing to see where it hurt and then inject into the pirifomus till i told him where i feel the muscle jump. I told him i cannot tell by pushing on it. It doesnt hurt like that. Well he assures me that it takes skill to do these injections and he knows where the pirifomus muscle is. He left the room to mix my botox shot and i got even more nervous thinking to myself this is wrong. How is he going to be sure he’s injecting the right place and with botox of all things! When he came back i was almost in tears. I said im not so sure about doing this without ultrasound. I felt like an idiot and i was wasting his time. I apologized and said i would be more comfortable under ultrasound. He said he doesnt do ultrasound. So i decided to wait for the injection even though im in terrible pain. He said he would put my mixed needle in the fridge for next week so my other Dr. Can do it under ultrasound. My other Dr. Doesnt do botox injections so i dont know what will happen. This Dr. I saw today said that my original dr. Will give me a trigger point injection and i said ok but with the botox right? He said it doesnt matter whats in the needle. I said well ive been waiting for this botox for 8 months and of course it matters whats in the needle! Ive tried all the steroid and lidocaine etc and i want the botox to help ease my pain. He made me feel stupid. I know im not a dr but i believe that i made the right decision to not just let this man stick a needle full of botox in my butt without a 100% guarantee that it is in fact going in my piriformus muscle. I have no ides what he wrote in my file but he said that he agreed i shouldnt get the shot. Now i dont know if i insulted his intelligence by actions and words. So i have 2 questions for you #1 Do you think i made the right decision? And #2 will this mixed botox needle be ok in the fridge for a week till i can have the injection under ultrasound? Please respond to me. I am desperate and in pain and now im afraid that this Dr. Put some thing in my file that im paranoid or anxiety ridden. I was nervous today. I always am. I dont like needles. But i felt very torn today because i want that shot!

This is important because once blood vessels are blocked or damaged , they can no longer carry oxygenated blood through the tissue and tissue cells begin to break-down . Without cold compression therapy cellular break-down and tissue damage continues as the cells don't get the oxygen they need to survive. By limiting the amount of damage done to your tendon, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal tendon injuries faster and with less pain! This is why you need to treat your shoulder pain right after it's hurt, when you notice pain / swelling / inflammation, or directly after a re-injury. Applying a ColdCure Wrap ® right away will stop the damage immediately and unblock your blood vessels to let your body's natural blood flow in to start healing the tissue.

This obsession has become so common that Dr. Pope has come up with a term for it: Adonis Complex. What fuels it, he says, are the ridiculously outsized bodies purveyed by Hollywood, magazine covers, and even action-toy manufacturers (just check out the size of . Joe these days). "One of the biggest lies being handed to American men today is that you can somehow attain by natural means the huge shoulders and pectorals of the biggest men in the magazines," says Dr. Pope. "Generations of young men are working hard in the gym and wondering what on earth they're doing wrong. They don't realize that the 'hypermale' look that's so prevalent these days is essentially unattainable without steroids."

The number of players who have admitted using steroids in a confidential survey conducted by the NCAA since the 1980s has dropped from percent in 1989 to percent in 2003. [5] During the 2003 season, there were over 7,000 drug tests, with just 77 turning up as positive test results. [5] Scukanec claims that methods were used to get around the drug testing, whether it be avoiding the tests by using the drugs during the off-season, or flushing the drugs out of your system. This was used with a liquid he referred to as the "pink." [5] He stated:
