  • Cortisone

    I was just wondering if anyone has ever had a cortisone shot and had problems. I had an injection in my knee on Thurs and ever since have not felt well. It feels that my heart is constantly racing, but when I have my girlfriend check my pulse its only in the 85-95 range, which shouldnt make me fell this yucky. Any input would be helpful.

    a little fast

    Dear Bryan,

    60-80 is normal, so 85-95 is kinda fast. If it doesn't feel right, then it probably isn't. Call the doctor and see what they say.

    take care,

      Sarah is right, call and check with your doc. Usually, something is mixed with the steroid(a numbing med to get you thru the injection) and you could have a reaction to either. Or, it could just be coincidence. If you don't feel right, check it out. Linda
