Dear WH, welcome to HW! I have had steroid shots directly into the joint, shoulder and wrist...ouch! But it worked immediately for the pain. I would not do it again, though, unless doc insisted. As couchtater said, they wear off, some sooner than later. Tell us more about you dx and symptoms. Have you seen a rheumatologist? Good luck and stick around. You can get some good information here as you move forward in coping with this crappy disease.
