Re: Intra-articular steroid injection in hip
I had a 'cortisone flare' last night once the anesthetic wore off. I literally thought I was dying. It was horrible. Unbelievable pain, dizzy, disoriented. I knew it was a chance (30%) so I wasn't too surprised, but I was shocked at how bad the pain was. All I could do was sit there and cry. But, I finally went to sleep and woke up at midnight and it was gone. Now I'm back to my pre-injection hip pain, which is like heaven compared to last night. It could take a few days for the steroids to kick in.
