Re: Kenalog injection.

Hi ... hope you are feeling better after the shot. Steroids can have serious side effects with long term use. It's not typical to have significant side effects with occassional use to control a severe attack, although some people seem to be especially sensitive. Most people do very well and get significant relief from the shot. Hopefully, its not something you need on a regular basis. My blood sugar also goes up with a high steroid dose like this but it settles down again quite quickly.
