Subject: Steroid Injection

Hi I have RA, I'm on 15mg MTX and 400mg Plaquenil. Very sore feet and can't sleep with the throbbing sensation. They are putting my MTX up but gave me an injection last Thursday, got worse Sunday but settled down now. Still haven't had much relief from the injection. How long does it take to kick in?
Cheers

It can take up to a week so about now but, of course, it varies from person to person. Talk to your consultant if it doesn't improve as they can add in some oral steroids. I quite often have both.

That's great, I thought it was only 2-3 days so at least there is still hope!

Cheers, have a great weekend.
