Subject: cortizone injection.

Hi all hope you are well and the cold didn't get to you too badly.
I had a steroid injection on Thursday and since then my elbow has had me in agony. I have had extra stiffness and my arm just aches. I get a shooting pain down my arm if I staigthen it and starts. I never had this with my knee it just worked for a few days then stopped this just aeamed to make it worse as before I knew what I can do using the arm now its less.

Which joint did you have the injection in Davina?
When I had one (second of two)in my shoulder it took a few days to work but quite a long time to be really effective.

davina , will your elbow straighten , and did it before your injection ? , could be with the injection reducing the imflamation it just makes it hurt more

my right elbow wont straighten & not done so for several years cause of spurs on the joints , on my left elbow got a Elbow Bursitis , they dont hurt much so should not be that

anyway hope will settle in few days , long term the injection should help

Hi Colin no it didn't straighten before but now its worse and the pain is worse when I do straighten it a little.
Just no relieve its been a week now and its always sore. On the upside I can see the end of the elbow which I haven't seen for over a year. Thanks for your help x

Davina , when it gets more inflamation it should ease up a bit , not ideal I know , they can do key hole surgery some time in the future & clean the joint out , not had it done myself

hope it starting to feel bit better

You Poor thing davina, I been reading ur posts and just feel for you, I have R.A as well and my elbows do not straighten out properly due to years of arthrits on them, had steroid injections in them once helped for like a day or so but nothing more.

Hope you feel better tho as u have taken cortizone injection.
