bloomin typical I was diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis 3 months ago, in my knee, middle finger and elbow (all left side...) any I Was prescibed sulpha 3 months ago, 4 a day, for the last 6 weeks I have had to take no pain relief, until this weekend. yesterday elbow and knee both seized up, I am pretty sure it was becasue I was hungover
so never made it out of bed all day yesterday. Until then I have been going to spin classes twice a week, and a personal trainer twice a week, which have really really helped my mobility.
Anyway at the rhuemy today who decided my elbow was just an inflammed as the last time (not sure if this was just because of the above mentioned) anyway he decided to up my Sulpha to the max dose, and give me a steriod injection into my elbow!!!!!
This was not what I was expecting, I am just so glad my fiance was there, otherwise I would have freaked out ( i am terrified of needles).
Anyway my next appt is October so my question (After a long ramble) is. how long will the steriod last?
