Well, one month on from my steriod injection into the knee and I am still doing okay. I managed a 2.5mile walk on Saturday for the first time in ages (flat ofcourse).

I am now used to taking Meth by injection (even though I don't like it) but I have noticed that a few hours after taking in the injection I suffer from severe fatuige. But the next day I am fine. I am going to try and take it just before I go to bed and see if that makes a difference.

Injections are working fine, no more yuckyness and no more hair falling out.

Got an appointment with the Rhumey Nurse in 3 weeks, so will see what the next course of action is but I am hoping to stay on the injections.

    Wow! 2.5 miles! Well done to you, that is great news. I do my humira before bed, just in case of any trouble and so far, so good (inasmuch as there hasn't been). I also sometimes get very tired after the meth, normally when I have them both in the same week, so I must remember to do that in the evening too (my tiredness happens about 24 hours after the injection). Good luck with it all, I hope things continue to get better. DD
