Steroids for joint pain side effects

Pain after a corticosteroid injection is not the norm, but it’s not abnormal either. I can’t speak to your situation, but I can say that occasionally patients will have what’s called “post injection flare” where the pain is worse for 2-3 days after the injection. I would tell patients to put ice on the area and as long as it’s not red, swollen or with discharge at the injection site, sit on it for a couple days to see if it resolves. If it’s not any better after 2-3 days, then come into the office. And just so you know, it does NOT mean the injection did or did not work correctly, and it does not matter which technique was used to get the steroid into the knee joint.

Appropriate treatment with antibiotics can be very beneficial to Lyme disease pain. Additional medications used to manage the pain from chronic Lyme disease include non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, anticonvulsants, antidepressants, opioids, and muscle relaxants. Additional treatments include "restorative" yoga, enzymes, essential oils, prolotherapy, injections, relaxation, manual treatments and gentle exercises. Some patients use magnets, tens machines and creams. Oftentimes chiropractic (many types), physical therapy (multiple techniques) and acupuncture are extremely beneficial, although it can be trial and error to find the right practitioner who can be flexible to the variable needs of Lyme patients.

Even though anabolic steroids do not cause the same high as other drugs, they can lead to addiction. Studies have shown that animals will self-administer steroids when they have the chance, just as they do with other addictive drugs. People may continue to abuse steroids despite physical problems, high costs to buy the drugs, and negative effects on their relationships. These behaviors reflect steroids' addictive potential. Research has further found that some steroid users turn to other drugs, such as opioids, to reduce sleep problems and irritability caused by steroids.

Thank you this is helpful, but leaves many questions unanswered, so what of the person who first was diagnosed with RA then develops Osteoarthritis and despite -ve RA factor for many years continues to see deterioration and caught between moving to relieve morning stiffness and overdoing it and getting overuse pain from Osteo and then the unexplained fusion of joints such as the Elbow. Knee replacement takes care of one joint as does Hip but there seems no answer for the Elbow…..Hope someone is looking into that. Confused in Radium Hot Springs CA

"For years I had been a "junkie"--addicted to prescription and over the counter drugs. used oral and topical anti-inflammatory corticosteroids for 9 years to suppress my eczema/psoriasis. The steroids' side effect nearly killed me and did nothing to cure my eczema. Why elimination or suppression of the symptom is NOT the same as elimination of the disease . The side effects caused me to swell-up like a balloon and triggered terrible mood swings from deep depression to nasty outburst our rages. Functioning of vital organs such as my liver, kidneys, lungs and spleen were nearly shut down and I thought I would die." Shirley
