Cortisone Shots - Are There Any Risks Associated with them?

Cortisone Shots - Are There Any Risks Associated with them?

Cortisone shots are injections that help relieve pain and inflammation. They are injected directly into the joints such as the ankle, wrist, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow or spine. These injections are a combination of corticosteroids and local anaesthetics. These corticosteroids are similar to the hormones produced by the adrenal gland. Cortisone injections are often used to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, shoulder bursitis and plantar fasciitis. Though they do not cure the disease but they provide temporary relief.

These injections may be slightly painful but provide relief in a day or two that lasts for a few weeks or months at a stretch. Hence, cortisone shots provide relief faster and have longer lasting results than other forms of anti-inflammatory medication. Another benefit of cortisone injections as compared to other drugs that need to be taken in through the mouth is that it avoids side effects of anti-inflammatory medication such as an upset stomach etc. Cortisone injections can also be used to treat backaches and pain that radiates from the spine to an arm or leg.

However, cortisone injections are associated with a number of risks. These include:

  1. Infection in the joints
  2. Nerve damage
  3. Thinning of tissue and skin around the injection site
  4. Pain and inflammation in the joint
  5. Weakening or rupturing of tendons
  6. Osteoporosis or thinning of bones
  7. Lightening of skin around the injection site
  8. Osteonecrosis or death of bones in the injected area
  9. Blood sugar spikes – this is seen mostly in diabetic patients
  10. Weakening of the immune system if the person has an underlying infection

In most cases, these side effects are short-lived. Higher dosages and frequent administration can increase the body’s exposure to the corticosteroid. This increases the risk of long-term side effects such as:

  1. Acne
  2. Easy bruising
  3. Weight gain
  4. Cataract formation
  5. Puffiness of the face
  6. High blood pressure

Cortisone may also be held responsible for the deterioration of cartilage inside a joint. For this reason, doctors do not advise cortisone injections to be had more than 3-4 times a year. The minimum interval between two cortisone injections must be 6 weeks. Doctors also typically limit the number of injections given in one joint.
When used judiciously, cortisone injections can greatly improve the quality of a patient’s life. Hence it is very important to get treated only by a qualified doctor and to completely understand the pros and cons of using this form of treatment. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I have extreme pain in my left side breast due to clots (ganth- in Hindi. What should I do, pls give a solution?

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. First and foremost, I would advise that you connect in person with your OB/ GYN who can clinically examine your breast (s) and rule out complications, if any. As regards pain, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate the same. Gently massaging the breast (s) with little bit of a mixture of frankincense, sandalwood and lavender oils can help too. You may as well consider applying 'phytolacca decandra' oil topically for easing off breast pain. However, you need to exercise caution and stop further application should your skin be allergic to the same or you get any burning sensation. Simultaneously, do follow a streamlined and balanced diet (preferably Mediterranean) & regular lifestyle with due emphasis on regular exercise, stress reduction. You can take 'Amla Churna' (Patanjali) & 'Bael Churna (Patanjali- 1/2 tsp each with warm water, preferably before lunch daily for next 1 month. You can also take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, once daily. Consume plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. Especially, vegetables & fruits rich in carotenoids, vitamin C & vitamin B12 are likely to help in this condition. Also, apples, broccoli, and cabbage contain glucaric acid which is closely similar to calcium D-glucarate that helps clearing out toxins and excess hormones out of the body that is likely to increase the risk of hormone dependent growths like fibroadenomas and also cancers of the breast. Try avoiding tea, coffee, carbonated soft drinks, dairy products including chocolates, alcohol, greasy, sugary and other high calorie food stuff including fast foods etc all. Green tea is an exception though. Stay well hydrated and have at least 8 - 10 glasses of clear fluids through out the day. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely

General Physician, Delhi
Hi, light brown discharge can be related to sign of early pregnancy, Implantation bleeding, and is perfectly normal, Bleeding will typically occur 10-14 days after the egg is fertilized, some times Urine pregnancy test comes negative, in initial stages, so you need to get it done again, however sometimes brownish-pink discharge can be caused by an ectopic pregnancy, in this case you need to wait for some time and get beta Hcg test done, and an ultrasound whole abdomen, to make sure about your present condition.

Homeopath, Hubli-Dharwad
If she has 28days of regular cycle then her fertile period is 12-16days. How to calculate is suppose her first day of period is 5march then her fertile period will let from 16-20. If she has 32 days of cycle then she ovulat from 14days before her date. Example 5march she will be due on 10th april then ovulation will be 28 march.

Hello Dr. when my partner stimulate my vagina after 15 min of sexual intercourse my body temperature increases n I feel very warm at that time my breast too get harder n my vagina ejaculate a whitish type of water after that I feel very weak day long n breast also get loosen advise me how toh maintain breast tightness n which are the best ways in which penis can be inserted fully n properly because after stimulation of vagina my partner stimulate breast then he says to stimulate his penis n his penis loosen it tightness.

Sexologist, Howrah
The symptoms you have describe nicely are likely the natural signs of female orgasm- you just enjoy it, that's the goodness of sex. Have plenty of fluid & fruits (like banana & apple). To maintain firmness of breast there are lots of exercise- those are v helpfull, use sports bra- control obesity. Males are generally excited naturally before female- by that their penis erects automatically. If not happen deep kiss, hug, other form of sex (oral) may help. Intimate bonding is v necessary.

If it is found out that you fit into a higher risk category of having a baby with chromosomal problems, a cvs (chorionic vilus sampling) test or amniocentesis should be conducted, to check exactly where the placenta and the baby are positioned in the uterus.
