I'm in Germany now and got 5 days prednisolon steroid injection. It has no effect at all. The doctor says maybe the steroids will work in the weekend much better and I have to think about my last option: intratympanic injection of steroids with a needle in my eardrums. Because my T is 3,5 months old now there are no guarantees this will give relief but he said there are enough people with totally relief from T after the injections in the eardrum. I am very hard thinking to do it or not and I'm scared of this litle operation and also about the complications and pain and maybe my T gets worser? I have also the option to get again steroids with normal injection but the doctor says it'a my choice and the side effects are much stronger then intratympanic eardrum injection. What do you think about this. Who tried this or has experiences with it. Please help me to decide! I can also take another 5 days prednison infusion but I don't know if it will help because the first 5 did nothing. Is it worth trying another 5 days of this infusion? How long stays prednison in your system en when will it give effect after treatment, directly or about couple of weeks?
