The : The injections have nothing to do with these symptoms. You have mechanical problems and should be treated surgically. These problems never go away with injections since there is something physical blocking the joint motion. Get it fixed!

Synvisc (hylan g-f 20): Sometimes loose bodies or floaters or meniscus tears in the knee become more noticeable with more fluid in the knee. It's not necessarily a side effect of the injections, but rather how bad your arthritis is.
