I was diagnosed with RA in late April this year and I'm now on Methotrexate, Hydroxychloroquine, Sulfasalazine, and Naproxen with Tramadol/Co-codamol for pain relief. I had a steroid injection (in my backside) in April which is now wearing off and the flare is coming back. My RA is in both hands/wrists and both feet/ankles so I don't think localised injections would work too well.
We're due to go on holiday in August and I was going to ask for another injection to see me through that comfortably.
Question is - how often do they normally give steroid injections?
Thanks for any help
