What I wondered is this - my consultant tells me I can have injections into my knees or other joints to help the pain but I have to be seen at his outpatient clinic for that - once a week only. He said my GP could give it but my GP wont do it. When I have attended the out of hours clinic at the hospital in acute pain they also refused and one of the lovely doctors told me that I could only have two injections in my whole lifetime for this - clearly wrong as I have had 4 to date, the pain is very severe and my joint is rigid when I get these attacks - nothing helps and I cant take NSAID due to previous ulcer. Has anyone else had these experiences and if so what did they do and has anyone any suggestions for the pain relief?
