Psoriatic Arthritis and Cortisone injections

Had another Depamedrone (Cortisone) injection yesterday, also was taken off the Ustekinumab that I had been receiving for six months, it wasn't working. Feel a little better after the Cortisone but still far away from being anywhere normal. Just a final note, I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis almost twenty years ago. Still plodding on though. Lots of Love.

    Hi @barnseybscuk welcome to the community, good to hear that the cortisone is helping a little.  

    Members @sue_duke @Ytyvet and @Zoegb1 might be good to chat with as they have shared their stories of differing types of arthritis.
