Steroid injection and pip

Hello everyone I got my decision today on pip I got the lower award which I pleased with because I had a steroid injection which I think masked my symptoms so I am happy as didn't think I would get anything. 😊 Can anyone tell me how long the steroid injection lasts for it's not taken the pain away completely but taken the edge off. Thank you x

  • That could be from a few weeks to months. There is no one standard for these as it depends more on your body.xxxx

  • I have had many steroid injections, and sorry to say but i found they did not do much for me.

  • Mine lasts about 6-8 weeks , by then hopefully your other drugs will have started to kick in x
