Cortisone Inj in Dx of Fibromyalgia

Question- I'm currently in process of dx. Pain most of my life, more now as I age. Rheum gave me cortisone shots in my bottom as dx tool. Feeling much better. Is this common to have systemic relief this way. I'm curious as to why she gave me the shots as a diagnostic too. I don't fit the typical scenario with all 18 trigger points. Mine is deep muscle pain throughout my body. I have at least 11 trigger points, but again, they are sometimes very deep. I appreciate any thoughts on this or similar experience

    I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? Welcome to the forum and it is wonderful to make your acquaintance. I have pasted you a link below to our mother site, FMA UK which hosts loads of useful Fibro information:

    I am aware that quite a few members have posted about going for ''Coritsine injections'' but I have never heard of them being injected into the bottom for pain relief? Maybe another member can come along and say if they have or not? I have pasted an excerpt from a *Google quote on this which says they are injected in to specific pain areas:

    *Cortisone shots are injections that may help relieve pain and inflammation in a specific area of your body. They're most commonly injected into joints — such as your ankle, elbow, hip, knee, shoulder, spine and wrist. Even the small joints in your hands and feet might benefit from cortisone shots.2 Jul 2016

    I have never had them myself but I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck with this.

    All my hopes and dreams for you
