Steroid jabs rarely do anything for me, whereas prednisolone works very well, have you tried it?

I've just had one today. Should last about 4 weeks.
They work for me!

Yes Tom been taking those for 6 weeks but didn't work so doc is taking me off of them. Thanks bsk for the info let's hope I don't have to have the jabs into the joints by the way do they hurt just in case.

Hi Elaine, I've had several jabs into joints and they don't hurt much. I find it easier if I don't look!

Ok, just proves that some things work for some and don't for others. Good luck. I have had about 10 in last 18 months, they don't really hurt.
