Hi there, I have been suffering with a rotator cuff injury since lifting a heavy box at work in August 2015. After having physio, acupuncture (as it was giving me migraines ) I was advised to have a steroid injection which I did about three weeks ago. Since having it the pain got worse, then terrible aching and the last couple of days there has been some improvement. I was just wondering if those people who have had injections have had permanent relief or for extended periods?

If you have followed any of my posts I've had several setroid injection over several years, not good!!!
From 2003 to 2008 working in a manufacturing inviroment after my inital injury when I finally retired I was getting about 7 steroid shots every 3 mo in both shoulders at varous tendon attachment points " trigger point injections".
The pain control Dr said he didn't think it was a toxic level but an othro Dr finally said way to much, could soften tissue causing tears as mine did.
It was only way to control pain without drugs. I must say ACE soft cold packs worked pretty good.
I was plagued with a tear of the supraspinatus attachment or tendonitis on outside of left bicept for several years from over use. Treated with ice and injections resulting in complete release and destruction of left supraspinatus.
Eventually shoulder reversal surgery.
Not to many injection!!!!
Good luck Tracy
