Cortisone shots: Cortisone shots are done for a lot of reasons. A shot into a joint may relieve arthritis pain, at least temporarily. But cortisone has many side effects. Yes, you gain weight, but also shift fat to the midsection. You get Insulin resistant, which can lead to diabetes. It can weaken your bones: osteoporosis. Your body can tolerate an occasional shot, but this should not be done lightly.
