Hi brains trust, just wanting to find out if anyone has had steroid injections for carpal tunnel, and what the experience was like? Was it at least partly effective?
It’s a bit odd carpal tunnel has popped up now, as my arthritis has actually been really quite good since starting Stelara in June (or at least I thought so), but it seems like it’s a pretty definitive diagnosis and I’ve gotta be able to use my hands or I’m not going to be able to work (which will make eating difficult ).
How long did it take for you to notice results? And has anyone tried systemic steroids for it? I have Crohns that just will not abate at the moment, so I am wondering if I give up all these other methods and try prednisone.
I do seem to be quite resistant to it though (too much at the start of my PSA journey I suspect), so it won’t be a nice experience (likely >50mg a day for weeks before tapering). Any tips welcome, as I have the first injection scheduled in 10 days.
