For the last 2.5 weeks I finally have had some relief from that most painful steroid injection I had back on 7th October.
Think it was more painful this time as the space between the joint is so small now due to the arthritis.
Took a long long time to kick in, almost 4 weeks, and it’s either wearing off already, or the huge dip in weather temperature is to blame. As it’s nagging, not hugely, but I am aware of it most of the day.
I was hoping for the 9months relief I had gotten the first time. Alas not meant to be, though it’s nagging, at least it’s not that white HOT bone pain that I had previously.
The right thumb is flaring up, but I’m still too scared to go and get it done. Though I’m starting to get tempted. I’m trying to leave it as long as possible though.
Back to almost bathing in ibuprofen gel, and wearing splints. Curse you #Arthritis #EhlersDanlosSyndrome
