I have had rheumatoid arthritis for 10 years. When I was first diagnosed I had cortison injected in my knees and, had been in remission for 8 years. I've had pain growing more severe in not only my knees but hips etc. They ran more tests to see what family the RA was from and I was injected in my knees and elbow Nov 9th with cortisone. I am imobile, cannot sit or get up without pain or this elastic band feeling in my knees, I'm shaky and weak in the knees.
It started just after they administered my shots and has gotten worse. I was not told how long that this would take to feel better. Since it's been 10 years since my last shot, I don't remember what to expect.
Anyone know how long it will take to get the full effect of the cortisone without this pain and discomfort?
