Re: ????? About Sterioid Injection

One or Two steroids injections is not going to make you gain weight. If you take steroids regularly by mouth; yes, it can cause you to become puffy and gain some weight. Shots- no worries!

Re: ????? About Sterioid Injection

Yes, steroid injections are typically no to low side effects. The issues you can hear of are primarily from high oral doses taken long term. I encourage you to discuss your concerns with your doctor. Best wishes.
