Two weeks ago I saw the rheumatologist. I had severe pain in my shoulder and I could hardly move my arm, pain in my knees, feet and ankles. She gave me a steroid injection in my shoulder and within 2-3 days the pain in my shoulder subsided but not only that I could walk without suffering pain in my feet and ankles. I do however have pain in my knees though. Can anyone tell me does the steroid although injected into just one joint get absorbed by the body to other joints helping the pain? It just seems such a coincidence as the pain in my feet and ankle subsided at about the same time as the pain in my shoulder.
