Steroid shot in wrist joint

Cartilage tears take a long time to heal; during this time the knee should be rested, this usually implies the patient using crutches to prevent the knee from bearing weight. Anti-inflammatory medication and pain relief will help to ease symptoms. Larger tears may require surgery, although only certain injuries may be treated surgically. Surgery is usually carried out by means of an arthroscopy (keyhole surgery). The knee should be rested for a long period of time following a cartilage tear. Physiotherapy will help to build strength around the affected knee and help to prevent injury in the future.

I have had the electro tests on my nerves and they do not believe I have carpal tunnel. The doctor there told me it is more likely to be tendonitis.


Does this make sense? All the sites I have researched do not show tendinitis causing pain through the hand and knuckles.

Hi Jay.

It's true, most sources don't think of Tendonitis as anything other that a very site specific injury or source of pain.

Unfortunately, that's just now how the body works. The body does not work in isolation. Everything is connected. Everything responds and compensates and shifts to each and every tiny change.

It's also useful to notice that you doctor has no idea what is causing your pain.

You could have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and have just fine results from the nerve conduction testing.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which is nothing but a label for a set of symptoms, can be VERY similar to Wrist Tendonitis .

If you have a Pain Causing Dynamic , whether it's mild or acute, you can have all sorts of pain throughout the area.

Tell me more about your symptoms, your activities, the history of this, etc, in as much detail as possible, and I'll have a better idea of what's going on.

Kenalog in blood - Derby et al. "Size and aggregation of corticosteroids used for epidural injections"

  • Depo-Medrol also formed large aggregations in the study by Tiso et al [6]
  • Celestone Soluspan formed large aggregations only in the Derby et al study  [7 ]
  • It is speculated that these large aggregates occlude smaller vessels, and thus lead to infarction .

    I have all these symptoms too... the heart palpitations, sweating, flushing, feeling extra emotional. My coworker said something to me that normally would not upset me and I started to have tears in my eyes and I couldn't help it at all I had to walk away. I thought it was probably all due to my anxiety but I've never experienced it like this before. I got 8 trigger point injections in my thoracic area on Friday, so it's almost been a week for me now. I am also wondering when my back pain should feel better?? My doctor also never told me any of this, I can't believe how common it seems to be!!

    I have been suffering with piriformus syndrome for the last year and the pain is excruciating. I have had several (over 8) injections of steroid, lidocaine and one of toradol. All of these injections have been done either under xtay in the hospital or under ultrasound in my Dr.’s office. Thay have not given much relief so i inquired about botox about 8 months ago. So i was referred to another Dr. In the same practice. I met with him 4 weeks ago and he thought i might get some relief with the botox. I was scheduled today and went in this morning. This Dr. Was going to have me lay on the table and give me a botox injection in my piriformus muscle. I asked how he was going to find it. He said by pushing to see where it hurt and then inject into the pirifomus till i told him where i feel the muscle jump. I told him i cannot tell by pushing on it. It doesnt hurt like that. Well he assures me that it takes skill to do these injections and he knows where the pirifomus muscle is. He left the room to mix my botox shot and i got even more nervous thinking to myself this is wrong. How is he going to be sure he’s injecting the right place and with botox of all things! When he came back i was almost in tears. I said im not so sure about doing this without ultrasound. I felt like an idiot and i was wasting his time. I apologized and said i would be more comfortable under ultrasound. He said he doesnt do ultrasound. So i decided to wait for the injection even though im in terrible pain. He said he would put my mixed needle in the fridge for next week so my other Dr. Can do it under ultrasound. My other Dr. Doesnt do botox injections so i dont know what will happen. This Dr. I saw today said that my original dr. Will give me a trigger point injection and i said ok but with the botox right? He said it doesnt matter whats in the needle. I said well ive been waiting for this botox for 8 months and of course it matters whats in the needle! Ive tried all the steroid and lidocaine etc and i want the botox to help ease my pain. He made me feel stupid. I know im not a dr but i believe that i made the right decision to not just let this man stick a needle full of botox in my butt without a 100% guarantee that it is in fact going in my piriformus muscle. I have no ides what he wrote in my file but he said that he agreed i shouldnt get the shot. Now i dont know if i insulted his intelligence by actions and words. So i have 2 questions for you #1 Do you think i made the right decision? And #2 will this mixed botox needle be ok in the fridge for a week till i can have the injection under ultrasound? Please respond to me. I am desperate and in pain and now im afraid that this Dr. Put some thing in my file that im paranoid or anxiety ridden. I was nervous today. I always am. I dont like needles. But i felt very torn today because i want that shot!
