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?

I had injection in left hip! It worked. Although need to be careful not to aggravate it.
Relief after one 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.

Hi guys I've tried injections of steroids and not only did they not help but they mess with my Diabetes terribly, I wanted it so badly to work for my fingers I'm curious about the prozolone, might ask about that, thanks!

My first 2 injections in my elbow haven’t worked.
But I am going to have a guided injection in a few months
If that doesn’t work it will be a visit to orthopaedics
