Hi all. Recently had a very painful steroid injection into my finger joint. Side effect: clear hands and clear body. Sure it won't last but hooray!

Hi John. I hope you are ok. I just wanted to share my very surprising side effect. The procedure itself was at a level of pain I've not endured before and I don't know if I could face it again. It has been successful though and at the moment I have full use of my hand. I have just had my feet, hands and chest X rayed and a big blood test before I see rheumatology to see if I have early onset Psoriactic Arthritis.
I'm hoping I am clear.
I don't know how long I will be clear but everyday is a bonus. I have seen my knees for the first time in many years and I can't stop looking at them!!! What a saddo!!!
Take care John.

Result, Kim! That is fantastic. Thanks for sharing, maybe it can help others when considering treatments for similar stuff! Good to hear how things are and hope it continues!

Thanks all. I hope I'm the same as Kelly and get that length of clear time. I honestly never expected it so it's really been a pleasant surprise. I will let you know how it goes. Thank you for your kind words.
