I have been advised that I may need to have a steroid injection in a few weeks time to bring my Lupus flare under control. Due to the bad experiences I have had on previous medications, I am quite apprehensive. My specialist said that the side effects such as weight gain/moon face etc aren't a problem with the injection as with oral steroids but I would rather hear this from anyone who has had these injections - pro's and cons. I realise everyone is different but this would be a big help. Many thanks.
