Deca Durabolin helps back pain?
I have severe lower back pain. I have a strong core and keep it up to help my pain, but my job entails some physical labor which can aggrevate the injury. I have a couple lower discs that have degenerated. A friend of mine whom I just met has the same problem, but his doctor prescribed him Deca Durabolin and I think also Testosterone. He takes them in smaller amounts than what one would on a cycle. I hear this is a good steroid when it comes to little side effects. He says he hasn't had back pain in a long time and this drug adds moisture to the joints from what I understand.
My questions are...
Is Deca for back pain and if so would a doctor prescribe it if I brought it to his attention.
I haven't done steroids in 13 years and I do not want hair loss or side effects, so how would deca do for me on the side effect route being on a smaller cycle long term.
If a doctor won't prescribe it, I hear you can get it online, such as overseas or underground labs, but I know little about those and I hear most are fake, so how would I go about getting the actual stuff my doctor would prescribe to me.
I'm just wanting everybody's advice since my pain sucks and I have had this pain for 9 years and taking the steroid approach would be my last avenue, but I do keep in shape and I guess Deca is meant for body pains.
All information appreciated...thanks!
