I suffer from Psoriatic Arthritis with flare ups normally occurring only once a year, although they now seem to be increasing in frequency. I am not currently on any regular meds for this because of the infrequency of flare ups, although I have in the past had intramuscular injections of kenalog.
So last night the pain started in my left ankle and right knee, and while it's really painful, I have had it much worse. My question is should I get an injection as soon as possible to try and prevent the pain getting any worse? In the past I have typically waited until pain is unbearable and has gone on for a while before contacting the hospital, especially as the rheumatology secretary who I have to call is a bit of a Rottweiler!!
Would really appreciate if anyone can advise if there is any benefit either way.
