Corticosteroids are used to control inflammation in arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Corticosteroids can be injected directly into inflamed tissues, or they can be delivered to the whole body via oral preparations, intravenous injections, or intramuscular injections. Steroid injections may provide significant relief to patients with arthritis or musculoskeletal conditions. For patients with rheumatoid arthritis , the injections are typically offered when only one or two joints display active synovitis . The goal of treatment is to quell symptoms of a flare or to enable slower-acting drugs, such as methotrexate or Plaquenil , time to work. For example, in early rheumatoid arthritis, study results revealed that a combination of DMARDs and intra-articular steroids is significantly better than DMARDs alone.
If you are going to start your first cycle soon, 'how to inject' is probably that last thing that you are worried about. You would have started by conducting research on the different injectable anabolic steroids available in the market, whichyou think can help you reach your goal. But when you have the vials and the syringes in front of you, you will surely think about how you will get the steroid out from the bottle and into your body. At this point, some people will become exasperated and even give up. Here is some information on injecting anabolic steroids.
Hi Matron....yes the Steriod can be circulated throughout your body, via your blood stream....Our muscles are supplied with blood, which absorbs the steriod, and will automatically tranfer it to other parts of body. My rhuematologist has said that she can inject upto 3 points in one session, with a few weeks/month break in between. By administering an injection into the Gluteal Muscle (bottom muscle), which is one of the major/largest muscles, with the most blood supply, could be the answer to a faster/more diverse result.....also the more you have (or in my case at least), the lesser the effect, so perhaps, if you widened the time-span, you may also get a better result....it has been over 12 months since I have received an injection, but have also not needed an injection into the points of previous injections...making me feel that the steriod has assisted in the healing of these joints. I am now considering the need for a steriod injection into my R) Facio-maxilla joint, as it has been very tender over last few weeks (have seen dentist and awaiting results of x-ray, but was told by same dentist about 5 years ago, that this site is affected by arthrites)...Hoping this gives you food for thought.
