cortisone injections for costochondritis?

My pain management doctor wants to give me cortisone injections in the chest for my chronic costochondritis. I'm scared. Has anyone ever had them, and if so, do they work and did you have side effects? My appointment is Monday, so I would REALLY appreciate some advice quick! Thank you!

Actually, I chickened out when I went to the doctor. I go again mid-October and will probably get them then. I have had a couple other doctors strongly recommend I do it. I keep thinking surely somebody on this board has had this done, and keep hoping someone will respond and let me know what to expect. Thanks for asking.

I had a friend have it in her chest and the pain went away. She hasn't had a flare-up again. I wish you the best.
