Hello All,
 
I am new here.  Was wondering if anyone with uncontrollable inflammation (diagnosed with sero-negative inflammatory arthritis) has had their rheumatologist suggest Yttrium injections.  My rheum. wants me to have these injections in my knees (where the inflammation is the worst).  I can't find much info on this procedure or the side effects and she wasn't gving me any information, except to say that some people get years of relief from one injection.  I don't do cortisone anymore... lost it's effectiveness.  Can someone help? confused

I just googled Yttrium and the two sites I went to say that it is a cortesoid injection with an anathaestic mix.Try googling the med and see what you come up with.
