Had orthovisc last round and worked great. Doc said to switch to synvisc and just had first injection and feel burning and sharp pain 3 days after. Should i go back to orthovisc? What's wrong?
Reaction to synvisc: Synvisc has the highest adverse effect rate. One in particular is a pseudosepsis reaction which mimics an infection. If one product works well, then there's no reason to switch- go back to orthovisc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
If I had 4 injections of Hyalgan and it didn't help the knee pain would Synvisc, Eufflexa, Supartz or Orthovisc help the pain?

No real side: Effects you can get a flare and some soreness from the injection some people can be allergic to the non-synthetic versions such as synvisc. They do help and do better in people with mild moderate arthritis. It doesn't reverse DJD but it does prevent it from accelerating. Arthritis can cause a clunk. I would see an ortho doc and have them go through your options. ...Read more
