Has anyone been taking steriod shots for the joint pain. I get one every three months and it really helps with the pain. I can tell when it is time for another shot because I get so bad I can hardly move. The shot really helps.

I get IV steroids every month and take prednisone, but I know what you mean about feeling them wear off. I have had steroid injections in the joints before but my doctor doesn't like to give them often because he thinks it weakens the joint. And with the IV steroids, it would be way too much steroids, But I'm glad the injections help you.
