I have pain and worn cartilage in both hips and I recently asked the RA doc if I could get a prednisone or steroid shot in the hip—he said no as it's osteoporosis and steroids won’t help. I wasn’t offered any alternative & wondered if anyone knew of one. One odd thing: 3 years ago, a different RA doc said yes to both hips being injected. I held off as I thought I could live with it but now it’s much worse.
