The shot hurts like hell, think a MMR mixed with a tetanus shot. It makes me spacey and dizzy, but usually breaks an attack for me. This time it didn't, it just made me dizzy and ill, and it just took the edge off. Worth a try if you hadn't tried it before though, have to go to the Dr. to get it, but it used to work for me to break a flare.

Advice & Tips
It works when I have a bad flare and can't break it. I usually wait for like 3 weeks before i finally break down and go to the docctor to get a shot. I hate having to do that because it puts me out of commission for at least a day, if not two, and it wears off after it gets through your system. It does seem to reset a flare back down to a less horrible level though. Its a band aid, certainly not management.
