This is my first post here so hello everyone! I was diagnosed with RA last July and started taking Methotrexate in October. Unfortunately I have been off the meth for a month now as it was doing my liver in. I’m currently having blood tests every two weeks to check my liver and am waiting for it to get back to normal to be tried on some other medication. The meth was working really well though! I didn’t realise how wel it was working until over the last week the RA pain and swelling came back in full force. The nurse I have been speaking to suggested I get a steroid injection for now to ease the swelling and pain. I have never had steroid injections before and have never had an injection in my buttocks! So I go have it this morning and apart from a little sting it was ok. Since getting home though I’m in agony! Got pain in the injection site and going down the back of my leg! So I’m wondering if this is normal and if so how long does this pain usually last? Thanks for your help!
