A member asked:

Can someone please explain to me some things about cortisone shots like risks and benefits/side effects, etc?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

See details: Local cortisone shots really have little risk. If you are diabetic, they can raise blood sugar to a modest degree. There can occasionally be some pain after injection but that is temporary. The benefits involve the injection's ability to resolve the area of inflammatory and relieve pain.
