I saw my Rheumy last week and she confirmed I am having a flare at the moment. She still would like me to go on Methotrexate or Sulphasalazine. I have refused them in the past and still don't want to take them. She said I could have steroid injections, 3 in total a fortnight apart, but she said that steroid injections could make things a lot worse. I agreed to have the injections and had the first last Wednesday and must admit it has made me feel a lot better. I do realise that this could only be temporary and eventually it will come back. Just wondering if anybody else has been told that steroid injections can make RD a lot worse or if she is just miffed cause I won't have Methotrexate
