I got a cortisone shot in my knee today It felt fantastic until the numbing...
Well I won't be doing this option.. thank you for sharing your experience.
Dr said it will feel a ton better after about 48 hours, but until then
It's usually the local anesthetic the doctors mix the cortisone injection with that hurts more than the cortisone itself.
Oh during was fine. It burned a little with the local, but not bad. That was at 9 this morning. Lasted a good few hours. I can't even bend my knee right now though. It sucks, but I'm sure once it stays working in a couple days, I'll change my tune lol. Just trying to figure out something that can help the pain until then.
My dr doesn't wanna risk infection & more damage that cortisone causes over time .I'm already advanced stages of OA . I'm not sure how to go right now .
It does get better but like my doctor told me it doesn't work for everyone. Good luck. I hope you get some relief.
