I ve been in various degrees of pain these past seven months and my doctor ( private via insurance) attributed it to a prolapsed disc causing back pain and right leg sciatica. Hes recommended me to have a steroid injection. My back pain has now settled.
Aside from this ..the pain and swelling in my left knee has persisted and following a blood test, my GP says i have RA and referred me to a constant rheumatologist.
Do you think I should go ahead with the epidural injection? Or wait to see what the rheumatologist says?
