I just got a cortisone shot in my knee. They used a different type this time. I had it about an hour or so ago, but now am feeling SOB and my glands in my neck are tender. Is this normal?


Guns are at the bottom of lake James, and my wife is mean. So no dibs.

Call your doc and ask???

Call your physician immediately.

I think I am going to lay down. The wife is on hold with the docs office. My vision is funky too. I've had literally dozens of cortizone shots and this is the first time bullshit like this has happened.
Link Posted: 7/17/2013 12:04:22 PM EST
Yep. Make the call.
Now please, since you have nothing to give should you croak.

Vision changes can be a side effect of steroids. Sorta like a odd foggy detached from your sight kind of thing right?

Hope you come out ok from that bad shot, but if you don't, all I can say is thanks for letting us know to look at the bottom of Lake James. Scuba gear is out and getting loaded, plane ticket bought.

Geez, man. Find out what he gave you, pronto. It's probably bupivicaine mixed with hydrocortisone. You may have developed an allergy to "Caine" anesthetics.

Sounds like an allergic reaction/anaphylaxis. Hang in there.

FINALLY SOMETHING I CAN HELP WITH!!!!

Sounds like your body is processing the cortisone as if it were an infection and directing the steroids to your lymph nodes. This should not be a problem and may be how that individual steroid works (Every one is different). If they pain from your arthritis (generally what I would give cortisone for) is gone, then mission accomplished. Give it a few days for your lymph nodes to process everything.

It could also be that you are about to get sick as an unrelated event. The lymphatic system deals with blood infections by bringing them to the lymph nodes where the infection can be dealt with and processed.

I hope this helps! IM me if there are any farther issues!

EDIT:

I just read more of the post! That sounds like an anaphylactic reaction! ER time now. In the mean time, get benadryl in your system and call 911. At the hospital they will give you Epinephrine and lots of saline so I hope you are used to needles!
Link Posted: 7/17/2013 2:22:48 PM EST
Check to make sure it as indeed a steroid, it may have been a hyualronic acid injection (helps your cartilage stay squishy).

Either way, never get this particular shot again.

Ok, three rounds of IV Benadryl, some more steroids and epinephrin and they are sending me him. My tongue swelled like crazy and my throat got a bit narrow. They want me to take 50mg of Benadryl ever 4 hrs.

ER saw me immediately, my ortho faxed them H/Ps before I even got there.

Lets just say that was a bit closer and spun out of control in a hurry.

I tore the ceiling out of my kitchen to do some plumbing on the bathroom upstairs and had this happen, exactly as your account.
Turns out I am allergic to horse hair. They used to mix it in plaster. The only thing scarier was having my wife drive me to the ER in my new to me lifted F150.

Second AAR, I slept like I haven't slept in a long time. I am feeling 99% better now, the doc at the ER said that I got lucky, another 20 minutes of being stubbornness could have had me visiting Shawnofthedead. I have to take 50mg of benadryl every 4 hours. So I figure it wouldn't be in my best interest to work today

Man I am glad you are feeling better, that's nothing to mess around with when your tongue starts swelling and you have trouble breathing.

Well I had to go back to the ER because my symptoms came back again. They gave me the whole IV cocktail again and sent me home with a ton of pills. Now pretty much all I do is sleep. Worst week ever.
