Has Anyone Had A Steriod Injection In There Joint

Hi I'm just wondering if anyone could give me some advice please, I had a steriod injection in my finger joint on Friday and I still can't bend it really pain full and swollen. If you had it could you tell me how long the steriod took to kick in?how many day?

Just had injection in thumb and pointer finger. Not the first time but it had been six months in between. It does take a couple of days before you really start to notice and it will get progressively better. If you are diabetic watch your sugar and carbs for about a week or so, as it will raise your blood sugar. I get injections in kness and hip periodically also.

@A myRAteam Member, I hope everyone is reading your message extra carefully and taking it to heart! Giving mind and body “a chance for things to calm down” is so important. Allowing ourselves to relax enough for shoulders to drop, fingers to unclench, lower back to release, ankles to drift outward....so very important. Add your favorite music, your favorite mediations and your mind and body will find the “calm.”

Yes I’ve a cortisone injections into both hip joints. It worked for me but I had to go home, have hot shower (heat) works for me and go to bed. Was much better. Have me a chance for things to calm down.
