Ok, just to update. I saw the rhumatologist, had an MRI, turns out its not my sacroilitis but it's actually my hip that has intense inflammation. For some reason the arthritis is not being controlled by the infliximab, or perhaps it is the infliximab or maybe it was the cipro that i took a few months ago. Just when i thought i was back on track -BOOM- another unknowable issue arises.
Anyway, rheumy wants me to have a cortizone injection under x-ray tomorrow, has anyone had this? How painful is it? What do i need to know going in?
