Hi all.....
I got a steroid injection in to the muscle (kenalog) yesterday. I was told that it would tide me over until I start on Enbrel at the end of the month. Anyway .... Does anyone know how many days it takes until it gives you as much effect as it is going to. I thought that I'd heard about 48 hrs . I was told it could last 3 months. Last time I got the jag it didnt have any real effect. This time I feel slightly better. Thanks peeps :)

    Its good that you are feeling the effect right away, at least you can get relief while you wait for your meds..sorry I cant advice but I hope it continues for you..

    Sorry, can't help, mormodook, as it's some time since I had one. I know reactions are varied and I'm just one of the lucky ones that they've always helped. How's things today?
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Hi sticky wicket , thanks .Nearly at 48 hrs ! Still the same ( But im not compaining !) A slight help but enough to notice My fingers have regained a little bit more movement . I took a before photo on my phone so I could see ! I now have to wait until the end May for Enbrel to start .Hopefully that will work. Hope you are well x
