How Long Did It Take For Humira To Make A Difference For You And How Much Of A Difference?

I have had two injections so far and no change at all. In fact, went into a flare and now on Medrol. If Humira works for you, how long did it take and how much did it help?

A myRAteam Member said:

The same thing happened to me on Humira. I recieved a Medrol shot Thursday. I asked the doctor to switch me back to Enbrel.

Has Anyone Else Had Muscle Atrophy From Steroid Injection?

Has Anyone Else Had Muscle Atrophy From Steroid Injection?

I have a large dimple on my arm that my rheumatologist said it is probably from the depo medrol injection I got a couple of months ago. She said it could take 6 months plus to go away. Has anyone else experienced this? Did it go away?

A myRAteam Member said:

Yes it does go away but can take a long time.

Medrol

Medrol

What are the serious side effects that I read when someone is teetering off Prednisone or Medrol after being on it pretty much for 3 to 4 years straight? On it up to 15, 20 mg a day as no other RA medication, infusions, shots, pills included, all stopped working on me. Horrible painful flairs constantly, never goes away for even a day, and all I would get are pills, and also in IVs at emergency :/
I would like to try to stop them all together as they will end up killing me before the disease and all the… read more

Has Anyone Tried To Taper Off Steroids And Experienced Terrible Headaches?

Has Anyone Tried To Taper Off Steroids And Experienced Terrible Headaches?

Was on Prednisone for 4-5 years. Stopped helping a lot. Switched to Methylprednisolone (Medrol) about 4 months ago and now trying to taper off it. Within two days severe headaches started. This happened once trying to taper off Prednisone. Anyone else experienced this? My rheumy says she never heard of this as a reaction.

A myRAteam Member said:

Is your doctor tapering you off? or are you trying to do it. It can take awhile to get down to none. Talk to your rheumy

What Does It Mean If My Cortisone Injection Isn't Working?

What Does It Mean If My Cortisone Injection Isn't Working?

I got a Depo-Medrol shot- 3mls in my bottom- on Monday. I was told that I would have relief between 24-48 hours. However, it's been 4 days and I haven't had any relief. I lay in bed for three hours last night in terrible pain, wondering if I was going crazy and all of this pain is in my head.

Have any of you had cortisone injections that didn't work? Could you shed some light for me on reasons why it didn't work? Does it not working mean that my pain… read more
