I had a steroid injection in my wrist & it worked amazingly well... for about 2 weeks. Hopefully yours will last much longer though. And I've tried pretty much every anti-inflammatory on the market - prescription & natural. Everyone's body chemistry is different so it may work brilliantly for you or not. Just be aware of the side effects/risks & symptoms of complications. Good luck - hoping for lots of pain relief for you
Everyone reacts differently. In my body different joints act differently. My knees respond amazingly to steroid shots. I can go about 2 years in between. My shoulders however, do not respond to the shots at all. Hope they help you.
I had the injection on Thursday
Celebrex is a good anti inflammatory drug it can play havoc with blood pressure though. I had a total knee replacement last July and am so much better as for osteoarthritis in my shoulders there isn't anything much that relieves the pain. Good luck with your treatment.
I've had them in my knees twice. First time didn't work. Actually made them worse. Hit my youngest was only a baby and I didn't rest as much I should. Had them in both knees an both wrists last year together and they lasted a good 3 months. It was so painful though. I couldn't move my hands for days. And I tested properly. Had no choice really was in too much pain.
Just make sure you rest as much as possible and don't walk about too much. They work much better. X
Thank you for all your input x gentle hugs
Your welcome. Gentle hugs back. Xx
I got cortisone shot(s) in my finger years ago and haven't been troubled by the pain and stiffness since. I do have stiffness in a different finger now, but let my acupuncturer work on it and I think it's coming around
