Hi  ,  I recently have  had alot of shoulder pain  i  went to  see  my consultant  on the  5th  of march he said  it was my Rotaters  cuffs  causing the  problem  so i started  doing the exercises he advised me to do . Anyway after  another 2  weeks of horrible  pain and stiffness i went  back on monday he  gave  me  2  steroid  injections  1  in each shoulder and today it feels  so much better and  now my other joints  seem to  be  settling  down  . I recently posted on this  forum as i thought i maybe  going on MTX   but  now things are   settling down again this will  not  be the  case . I think if you had   steroid injections in your shoulders it may help you i hope  so for you  it certainly as  helped me . Good luck

    Hi Ducky, i still the same. I go to my doc tomorrow to talk about injectables see which one is best for me. I've been putting it off for a year now. I was really scared of trying them, but now that i found this web site, i really wish that i hadnt waited so long. I just hope that i didnt wait too long. I was just thinking "well if start this now whats gonna happen in a couple yrs from now when this dosent work anymore then what am i gonna do". Now I think that that was very selfish of me. I have a little girl that really needs me and she always sees me in pain. All because i didnt want to start last year. I had my doc try diffrent oral meds to see if they would help and it seemed like they did for  a couple of weeks then the pain would come back. But now im finally ready. I want to be able to play with my child and go out with my husband for walks like we used to. Just feel a little normal. Also my best friend is getting married in November shes asked me to be her maid of honor and i really wish that i'll be able to. Well we'll see what happens tomorrow.
