I was hoping there was another simple remedy instead of getting steroid shots! LOL Oh well. I used one of those OTC aluminum splint that you have to tape on. For the past few nights, my finger hasn't been bothering me but it started again last night. It woke me up when I bent it.
But a question about
the steroid shot. I just had my pointer finger of my left hand injected about
2 months ago. Is it too early to get another steroid shot in the middle finger of my right? I know that steroid has a cumulative effect in the body but I don't know the time span in between injections. Also, can they do an injection like at the base of the hand so it will help all the fingers or does it has to be individually?
**edited to add - ok slap me in the forehead! I just realized why my finger wasn't bothering me in the night for the past few days. I was taking Tylonel Arthritis before I go to bed! Ok, so that makes sense LOL**

I have had two different joints injected on the same day. The limitation is to the number of injections and the spacing of the injections. My rheumy will not inject a joint more than 3 times a year. He will also not inject more often than every 3 months. My back guy will only inject the SI joints every 6 months.
