Does it hurt to get a steroid shot on your shoulder? If it does, can you take Tylenol (acetaminophen) afterwards? And How long does the inflammation last?
A tiny bit: If done as usual, you would receive a little local anesthetic that would sting until it puts the skin to sleep. Local anesthetic is usually given with the steroid (ask!) so that actually you may be pain free for several hours.

Congestion – saline nose drops or netti pot. For anti-inflammatory effect & mobilizing mucus- homemade chicken noodle soup. Hydrate- lots of water/clear broth/ add honey & emon juice to Chamomile tea. Rest. ...Read more
