Cortisone shot for tarsal tunnel syndrome

Hi, has anyone had a cortisone shot for tarsal tunnel syndrome. I need one in the right foot and don't know if they hurt and what kind of help I can expect from it. Due to swelled tarsal tunnel nerve near the ankle, my foot has numbness, tingling, swelling, and curl inward. Anyone had this cortisone shot?

But it did knock out the inflammation within a couple of days and relieved my pain.

However, I read that it can cause other problems.

You need to research in your case, the need for cortisone for tarsal tunnel syndrome and the risks in doing so.

I wish you the best in whatever decision you make.
