Hi guys, hope you're all well. I'm 34 & was diagnosed with RA when I was 22, mainly affected by my right toes & both knees. I had an X Ray on both knees & it's just bone on bone now. They won't give me knee replacements until the disease calms down, as I've been told it's pretty high. I've recently been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis aswell. My question to you guys is, I've had two steroid injections in both knees about 6 weeks ago... Unfortunately, they've both worn off now, so I'm stuck inside again.. I'm awaiting to be put on a self injection called Enbrel, anyone else been on this? Also, can my consultant give me another lot of steroids in the knees? Even though I had my last lot about 6 weeks ago.. Just until my new drug comes thru. Thanks x
