I had a cortisol shot on ankle to reduce chronic pain, 1yr of chronic pain. Pain killers never worked. So orthopedie gave me cortisol shot & the pain has been really bad for 14days now. On day 8 I went to see GP who said to come back affer day 17 AND he said there was no warmth in ankle so no infection. if pain is still there & he will then refer me back to orthopedie again.
At this point, I want to know if a cortisol flare can last as long as two weeks?
I thought it was 2-3 days max?I guess I'm here for reassurance, hoping someone comes here to to say they had a similar experience where cortisol flare lasted so long but they are now fine. Or is this a sign that these injections are not for me?
Thanks in advance!
