Comment:
Just had second injection.. Works great for pain and swelling of arthritis. Only bad thing is the injection site reaction. My thigh is red and hot and swollen up. Prescribed Vistril and ointment to help with burning, swelling and itching. Not sure if I should continue treatment or not. Very frustrating..
