    Hi Debbie, I am also due to have a steroid injection in my shoulder for shoulder impingement syndrome. I have previously had steroid injections in my hands and wrists, oh and an epidural one for a disc extrusion. The injections contain a local anaesthetic so from my experience don't hurt too much at the time but when the local wears off, can be a bit sore for a while. Hope this helps, and that the injection works for you. x

    Hi Debbie I have fibro and have had frozen shoulder both sides for a year I had a steroid injection in the early stage and it helped me I also went to physio and they showed me exercises I could manage to do myself I did mine in the shower each morning which helped a great deal.

      Hi Debbie

      I had a frozen shoulder, and I had a steroid injection from my GP,never worked

      I ended up seeing an orthopaedic consultant, who gave me another one, which I am sorry to say didn't work either

      exercises never helped, so painful to do, he decided to manipulate, it,.

      went into day ward and had that done, within the hour physio came to do the exercises, great, but my should was pumped full of anisthetic, when that wore off wow was I in pain.well even now I have limited use and it's still painful. Anyway we are all different so good luck , I really hope yours works
