I’ve been on long term steroid injections (5 years) for osteoarthritis.
I e been having them every 4/6 months over that time.
I was due an injection in February but due to getting bad bleeding under the skin on my hands, I thought I’d stop having the injections to see if the bleeding stops.....,,. It has!!!
Now, 2 months after injection was due, I am now getting extreme muscle pains in my back which have been steadily getting worse over the last 4/5 weeks.
I am also getting pain and stiffness in my hips and shoulders( I didn’t have this before starting the injections)
I am getting knee pain , as I expected as I have osteoarthritis in my knees, ( which is why theinjections started)
Can anyone tell me how long these withdrawal symptoms go in for???
I would suspect I have no steroid left in my system now, hence all this pain.
Any help would be very much appreciated
