Hyperpigmentation Of Skin After Cortisone Injection
Hyper sensitive skin on whole body for 3 months following cortisone injection in leg. Blood work normal. Skin hurt even if not in contact with cloths?
Anxiety: Please modify our medication taking. I suggest you take celexa, (citalopram) if you do not take it yet, starting with 10 mg twice a day and increase to 20 mg twice per day. Celexa (citalopram) is very good on anxiety control and improving pain tolerance. By the way, you should stop short acting narcotics. The more narcotics use, the more problem will be.
Maybe: The injection was not positioned correctly or that the issue is beyond response to cortisone.
Possibly: You possibly could die from a cortisone injection if you are truly allergic to cortisone and given a sufficient dose, but death related to a single cortisone injection for a healthy person with no known allergy to cortisone would be highly unlikely.
Minimal: ganglion cyts appearing frequently in the hand/wrist area are due to tendon motion in the sheath resulting in fluid collection and cyst formation. Aspiration alone has a high rate of recurrence. When aspiration is followed by cortisone injections into the cyst space the control if not cure is better than 80%. While surgery can yield somewhat better result there are complications.
Maybe ice: If you are talking about the brief redness right after the injection, you might make it go away quicker by gently icing the area. Don't put ice directly on the skin (use a cloth) and don't leave it in place more than 20 min out of each hour.
That: Pain is coming from ligament, from bursa, or there is arthritis on the joint, or issues of pronation or supination.
Cortisone injection: Yes you may have had an allergic reaction. Try taking some bendryl.
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.
Probably not: Cortisone injections are used to reduce swelling and pain. Sometimes the area is more painful for the first day or two, though.
Varies: It depends on the injury or problem. Sometimes a shot will be a one-time fix. Other times it might only last a short while. I generally don't advocate for repeated steroid shots anyway. For joint issues, I recommend you look up Prolotherapy or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Splints, braces, physical therapy, or supplements such as turmeric, glucosamine, MSM, chondroitin, etc, may also help joints.
How long should I wait to consume alcohol after a cortisone injection used for treating a sudden hear loss?
You should not drink: But if you insist you do it after 24 hours.
