Hi folks, it's the preverbial bad penny here again, I haven't been on for a few days, or is it weeks not sure time seems to pass by without relevance these days.
My question here is has anyone had steroid injections as my doctor seems to think this is the next step for me, I have managed to avoid them for several years now, by changing the subject anytime they were mentioned or cancelling appointments for them......But the pain is driving me doo lally and along with that I am getting depressed as I can't do the things I used to, which seems to go with the territory so the doctor says, also a friend of mine who's husband had severe R.A., said depression and RA go hand in hand at some point.
Back to the topic, should I bite the bullet and have the steroid injection or not? I mean I am in pain just now but is the pain of the injection going to outway the pain I'm in just now?
Sorry to ramble & thank you for reading and perhaps offering some advice.
