Meningitis scare reveals dependence on drugs/surgery for back pain

Shots of the steroid preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate, which has been linked to the meningitis outbreak, has become a common way to treat the pain. Roughly 14,000 people may have received contaminated shots of the steroid, which came from the New England Compounding Center in Framingham, Mass. In Maryland, 22 people have been sickened and one died.
