    Hi @Sheppsx

    I have replied to your first post with some links which I hope will help you and the Helpline Team Link.

    What did you have an injection for? Your hip or your Tendonitis?

    I am sure they are saying that just to cover themselves. Have you had one before?

    I have attached a link regarding steroid injections.

    Take Care & Stay Safe

    Ahaha, yes steroids is a funny thing. I've only had 2 shots. The info I'm getting from the docs about steroids is nonexistent, they assume that you somehow magically know about steroids.

    Hi Flycatcher,

    Speak to your local pharmacist they are the best people to speak to about any medications they explain it really well too

    love Jona 😊💪
