90 yr old mom. Cortisone injection in knee today. Now. Pulse is 94 and headache. She never has headaches. ER or wait til morning. .
Headaches. . .: New onset headache in someone who never has headaches is an alarm bell for us regardless of age, so best to get evaluated sooner than later. Unfortunately, I'm answering your question about 9hrs after you posted, so I hope that she's better whether you took her to ER or waited. I would recommend an emergent evaluation especially given recent history of contaminated steroids a few yrs ago.
Should I go to the er? I am having on and off sharp chest pains and sweating a lot with a terrible headache after having a epidural cortisone injection

A doctor gave me one cortisone injection in shoulder to help treat muscle injury. Could this stunt growth? (Doc said he would not give more injections
No: Isolated steroid injections are not associated with growth delay or growth retardation.
24-48 hours: The pain of the injection or the pain being treated by the injection? It should disappear within 24-48 hours.
Yes: Steroid injections can make these inflammatory conditions better.
Cortisone: Most injections of cortisone begin working within 24 to 48 hours, but can take as long as a week. If you don't notice relief within a week...Then it probably won't work.
Had cortisone injection 8weeks ago 4 shoulder bursitis but still have pain and mobility issues what shud I do to sort it out going weekly to p/t?
What is the approx. Percentage likelihood in your practice experience that a cortisone injection will significantly reduce shoulder impingement pain?
80-90 %: In my experience if you have a definite diagnosis of impingement syndrome (made by history, physical exam and confirmed by a good mri)your chances of improvement after a lidocaine/marcaine/steroid injection that is in your subacromial space (best done by ors) is 80-90%. In fact, if someone w/'impingement'does not get better after injection than the diagnosis may be incorrect or misplaced injection.
In your practice experience how effective is a guided cortisone injection for frozen shoulder if caught early, say two months into the freezing stage?
Possible help: Glenohumeral injections or steroid are an acceptable practice in conjunction with aggressive physical therapy in an effort to improve range of motion in 'frozen shoulder'. Still, the average duration of symptoms can be betwen 6-9 months and sometimes longer.
Had cortisone injection 8 days ago in my shoulder. Have huge bruise and it hurts worse than before the injection, is this unusual?
Need more info: Are you on blood thinners or high doses of anti-inflammatories like Ibuprofen or aspirin? A huge bruise would be unusual under ordinary circumstances. Was there trauma to the shoulder? Increased pain this late may be the signs of infection. Should be feeling better. Have you had any fever or unusual symptoms, -extreme tiredness or flu-like symptoms. You need to see whoever injected you asap.See 1 more doctor answer
Hey doc I was given a cortisone injection for my shoulder impingment but it did not work still have pain. Does this help your diagnosis?
Sure: Frequently we will use injections as a diagnostic tool. If a sub acromial injection fails to relieve pain, you need to look at other locations as the source including the ball and socket joint or the ac joint.
I had cortisone injection 2 weeks ago for frozen shoulder and impingement. Now, I can't abduct my shoulder past 30 degrees. It's stuck with pain. Why?
Yes: Many shoulder impingement sypmtoms are due to dys-synchronization of the shoulder muscles. See a pt or physical medicine doc to get more guidance. This rehabilitation is very slow but well worth the effort. Cortisone injections work well for certain type of bursitis involving the shoulder but work best in combination with therapy as above.See 1 more doctor answer

Not typically: Unless you are having a reaction to the injection. Probably unrelated.
Where is a cortisone injection given in the shoulder? I had one in the back of the shoulder but am having burning pain.
Subacromial bursa: The subacromial bursa or area below the topmost shoulder bone (acromion) and above the rotator cuff (supraspinatus) is the most common area to inject about the shoulder- usually to treat a painful shoulder with some form of impingement, bursitis, or a partial thickness rotator cuff tear or cuff strain. The acromioclavicular joint (where collar bone meets up to shoulder) is also common to inject
