I've had great results from the cortesteroid injections. The doctors still don't quite know what is wrong with my back other then Sacroiilitis. I had steroid injections in them, they didn't seem to help much or so I thought at the time. A few months on down the line the pain started to lessen and now it only bothers me if I do alot of bending. I have OA in my fingers and have received injections in the fingers of my left hand and it worked great. You can safely get the injections 3-5 times a year. Right now I am in the process of getting my second round of steroid injections in my neck for bulging/herniated discs. Depending on where they inject you, sometimes it can be a bit painful but remember to always always use ice after the injections. It makes a world of difference.
