I am having real PAIN after cortisone injection. I just got a cortisone shot yesterday afternoon for my tennis “elbow”, and within 1 hour my arm/elbow hurt way worse than before the shot.
24 hrs later it’s killing me! The pain in unbearable..Ive been icing it, taking Vicodin and still no relief.
How long does this so called “cortisone flare” last. Ive got work to do, and I hurt so much!
I wish the doc would have told me of possible side effects.. 5 weeks.. is the pain from the shot, or your original existing pain?
